UPDATE: The out-of-hours work scheduled for this coming Friday night (23 February) has been extended to include Wednesday night, 21 February. This will allow for repositioning of traffic lights at the Ipima and Condamine Street intersection. This work will commence at 8:00pm Wednesday night and conclude at 6:00am on Thursday morning. Thank you for your patience during these important works.
Scope of Works:
The Condamine/Ipima Streets intersection at Northbourne Avenue will be closed for two weeks from Monday 12 February at 10:00am through to 4:00am on Monday 26 February. The closure will be used to remove and replace road pavement.
Out-Of-Hours Works: For the majority of the closure, current standard working hours apply i.e. 6:00am to 8:00pm. However, by necessity, road tie-in to existing infrastructure will need to be completed out-of-hours. The time periods are:
- Friday evening 16 Feb through to Monday morning 19 Feb
- Friday evening 23 Feb through to Monday morning 26 Feb
Through-traffic on Northbourne Avenue will not be affected by the intersection works. However there will be:
- no right turn access into either Condamine or Ipima Streets from Northbourne Avenue
- no through-traffic between Condamine and Ipima Streets
- detours clearly sign-posted and road traffic management arrangements in placements.
The equipment and plant to be used includes roadsaws and quick-cut saws, jackhammers, excavators, hydrovac trucks, concrete trucks, plate compactor and rollers, light vehicles and trucks. Due to the nature of the work, some of the activities will be noisy.
The construction team will limit these impacts wherever possible by reducing the number of machines operating at the same time and turning off equipment when not in use. Noise blankets will be installed where practical. Non-tonal reversing beepers will be used and workers will be instructed to keep noise to a minimum.
Thank you for your patience during these important works.
