    • Reticulation repairs: 18-19 October
    • Finishing works: 23-24 October

    Access and Road Closures

    Road closures will be in place with detours around the work site. Local traffic will continue to have access whilst closures are in place. There will be on-site traffic controllers who will be happy to assist whilst the works are being undertaken.

    There will be periods of time (approximately 4 hours) following the laying of new asphalt road surface where vehicle access cannot be permitted. The laying of new asphalt requires a drying time to ensure bitumen doesn't stain property accesses.

    It may be necessary to temporarily re-route verge reticulation. The City will repair any reticulation if damaged during the works.

    Residents, please ensure that you test your reticulation system and report any faults to City of Nedlands within two weeks of the works being completed. After this period the City of Nedlands cannot be held responsible for repairs.

    Contacts

    If you have an issue or query in relation to the on-ground works, please contact the Roads2000 Project Manager, James Beier, mobile 0403 546 211 or telephone (08) 9202 0800.
