Works update 19 August 2021: Progressing safely
Construction work continues at Wongawilli in line with updated NSW Public Health Orders. Our priority is to ensure the safety of our staff and the community during this work and strictly follow the COVID-Safe plan we have in place.
With work progressing, updates will be fortnightly from now on. Please note the upcoming traffic management information below, required for the installation of stormwater road crossings.
- Asphalt Works The final asphalt layer for Wongawilli Road, between Smiths Lane and Bankbook Drive, was laid by Boral on Tuesday 17 August. Construction of the concrete traffic islands and line marking will follow.
- Retaining wall Between Smiths Lane and Jersey Farm Road Quotations for these works will close on Friday 20 August. Council will assess the quotations and appoint a successful contractor soon after.
- Southern Side Kerb and Driveways The kerb and gutter works are now complete on the southern side of Wongawilli Road between Shone Avenue and Smiths Lane for all properties. Council staff are also nearing completion of the driveway constructions for this section and the remediation of the nature strip behind this kerb. Turf will be laid on the frontages following these works.
- Culverts Additional Culverts were installed last week on the southern side. Pedestrian access will be maintained through the pathway on the southern side of the site.
- Stormwater Road Crossings - Cadifern will be working between Shone Avenue and Smiths Lane to install the remaining stormwater road crossings and stormwater pits over the next 2 to 3 weeks. During this time Cadifern will require the traffic to be reduced to one lane with stop/slow traffic management in place. The road will remain open for normal 2-way traffic conditions during the identified peak time traffic periods.
- Parking We'll continue to work with residents in managing their vehicles so that parking is avoided within construction zones. Council staff will provide as much notice and assistance as possible. Parking signage is currently under review with Councils Traffic Committee to determine if more on street parking can be utilised.
