***UPDATE THESE WORKS HAVE BEEN DELAYED UNTIL SUNDAY 22 APRIL AND MAPLETON AVENUE WILL BE THE FIRST INTERSECTION TO COMMENCE THESE STAGED WORKS**
Construction Works at Wizard Street/Mapleton Avenue/Manning Clark Crescent and Flemington Road intersections:
Haulage of cables for traffic signals is required within the light rail median for these three intersections.
The intersections will be closed to traffic in three separate stages between:
- Sunday 22 April 8:00pm until Friday 27 April 6:00am.
Traffic Management & Detours
Flemington Road will remain open to traffic travelling northbound and southbound. Local traffic will be able to turn left, in and out of Wizard Street, Mapleton Avenue and Manning Clark Crescent on to Flemington Road, however the intersections will be:
- Closed to traffic turning right into Flemington Road; and
- Closed to all through traffic travelling across Flemington Road.
Detours will be sign-posted, with traffic management in place and highly visible throughout the works.
The equipment and plant to be used includes:
- lighting towers; and
- hauling winch.
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.
