FEDERATION COUNCIL SNIPPETS
WORKS UPDATE – MELBOURNE STREET
Road maintenance on Melbourne Street, Mulwala, from Havelock Street eastwards to the canal crossing has commenced.
The NSW Government is funding this $800,000 project to provide a smoother, more durable road surface and reduce future maintenance requirements.
This work is part of a broader street improvement project being carried out and co-funded by Federation Council. Federation Council is carrying out the work on behalf of Roads and Maritime Services, which involves removal and replacement of the existing road surface. Council will also be installing new kerb and guttering, upgrading parking at frontage of Purtle Park and improving drainage assets.
Work commenced on Monday 5 March and is expected to be finalised by the end of June 2018, weather permitting.
Council will be working between 7.30am and 5pm from Monday to Friday and if required, between 8am and 2pm on Saturdays. Council will notify residents in advance if work is required outside of these times.
How will the work affect you?
Across the works area, changes to parking and property accesses will be required. Limited parking will be available along the project length. There will be some noise associated with this work, but every effort will be made to minimise the impact on residents and businesses.
There will be temporary traffic changes to make sure the work zone is safe. A reduced speed limit of 40 km/h will be in place during the extent of works being undertaken. Lane closures will be in place and may affect travel times. Motorists are advised to plan their journey, allow extra travel time and follow all signs.
If you have any questions, please contact Council on (02) 6033 8999. Thank you for your patience during this important work. *HEAVY VEHICLE DETOUR NOW IN PLACE: A Heavy Vehicle Detour is now in place until 23 April 2018.
