Works update 4 May 2021
Smiths Lane to Jersey Farm Road
Due to the current weather forecast, stabilisation works have been rescheduled for this Thursday, Friday and Saturday with sealing of the road to be completed next Monday. Contractors will be undertaking this work on behalf of Council. We'll provide updates if there are additional changes due to the wet weather.
Stabilisation is where we recycle the existing road pavement to create a new, stronger road while saving materials and money. Large machinery will turn over the road surface and a white powder made up of lime and cement will be added to bind everything together. The road surface will then be compacted by rollers, watered, trimmed by a grader and left to set for a day or two. A temporary spray seal of bitumen and stone chip will then be applied to waterproof the road while the binder hardens. The final surface will be asphalt. We provided this Road Reconstruction Info Sheet to residents to let them know what to expect during works.
Council’s crews have completed the kerb works at the intersection of Jersey Farm Road. Following stabilisation works we'll continue to work on the shared path and landscaping on the northern side of the road.
