Out of Hours Notice - Rail Installation, Barton Highway to Flemington Road Intersection

Construction Works:

Lengths of rail need to be hauled from the welding site near EPIC and installed along the track slab in Federal Highway.


Work Schedule:


The hours of work will be from 8:00pm to 6:00am from Sunday 15 July to Friday 20 July.  

Traffic Management and Detours:


Northbound lanes on the Federal Highway between Phillip Avenue and Flemington Road will be closed during these works. Traffic travelling northbound will have the option of either:


  • using Randwick Road via Barton Highway; or
  • turning right into Phillip Avenue and re-join Federal Highway via Antill Street 


Additional Information:

The equipment that will be used includes: excavator and light vehicles.

Due to the nature of the work, some of the activities will be noisy. The project team will limit noise 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.
