The out-of-hours construction times will be 8:00pm to 6:00am.
Traffic Management and Detours:
Generally this work will be undertaken in the median or adjacent verges and will only require lane reductions. For information on road closures and detours visit .
The equipment to be used includes: light towers, road saw, light vehicles, excavators , truck with hauling winch, elevated working platforms and vacuum trucks.
Due to the nature of the work, some of the activity 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.
These works are designed to transform Canberra, making it more accessible and to provide greater commuter connectivity across an integrated public transport network. We appreciate the continued patience of the public and the support of the Canberra community as we carry out these works.
