Works Schedule:
Out of hours works are scheduled to occur from Monday 26 February to Friday 9 March 2018. The work will take place between 8:00pm each night until 6:00am the following morning. As the works require all northbound lanes on Northbourne Avenue to be closed they can only be undertaken out of hours.

Additional Information:
Traffic travelling northbound and southbound on Northbourne Avenue will still have access during the day. There will be road detours in place to divert vehicle traffic and buses during the. Traffic management will be in place and highly visible throughout the works, including signage and personnel.

The following equipment to be used includes a road saw, vacuum truck, lighting towers, excavators, tipper truck, asphalt mixer, asphalt compactor and under-bore machines. 

Due to the nature of the work, some of the activities will be noisy. The project 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. Non-tonal reversing beepers will be used and workers will be instructed to keep noise to a minimum.
