    The City has commenced road resurfacing and associated works on Swansea Street between Jameson and Greenville Streets. The work is expected to take four weeks, however the works may take up to six weeks if weather conditions impede the works.

    Works are being undertaken during weekdays, between 7:00 am and 5:00 pm.

    Traffic management plans are in place to assist pedestrians and motorists to detour the site and to ensure that local traffic have access whilst road closures are in place. On-site traffic controllers will be happy to assist, however there will be periods of time (approximately 4 hours) following the laying of new asphalt road surface where entry to properties cannot be permitted due to ensuring that the bitumen dries and doesn't track into the properties.

    Reticulation will be temporarily re-routed during this period. The City will repair any reticulation in the verge if damaged during the works. Please ensure that you test your reticulation system and report any faults to the City within two weeks of the works being completed. After this period the City cannot be held responsible for repairs.

    The works will include:

    Works Description

    Scheduled Dates

    Kerb removal

    4-5 October

    Site preparation

    6 October

    Drainage pit adjustments*

    7–10 October

    Preparation works

    10–13 October

    Road resurfacing

    14–19 October

    New kerbing works^

    20 October

    Finishing works

    24–28 October

    *Drainage pits: existing gully grates and frames will be replaced with new square wave grated covers.

    ^Kerbing and reticulation will be replaced and upgraded with new standard semi-mountable kerbing.

    Council considers that these will mutually benefit the ratepayers, residents, businesses, pedestrians and road users of the City and your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
