Rail currently being installed along Northbourne Avenue between the intersections of Masson-Girrahween Streets and Macarthur-Wakefield Avenues, will continue throughout September. Activities include welding of rail, moving and installation of rail lengths.
The hours of work will be from 6:00pm to 6:00am Monday to Friday until the end of September with respite scheduled for Friday and Saturday nights.
Traffic Management and Detours:
There will be NO disruption to traffic with all works restricted to the Northbourne Avenue median. Any traffic management required will be in place and highly visible throughout the works, including signage and personnel.
The equipment to be used includes; excavator, hand tools, lighting towers, light vehicles and trucks. Due to the nature of the work, some of the activities may 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.
Thank you for your patience during these important works.
