Main South Road - South Express Cycleway

Update

What

Night time works for stormwater drainage.

Why

Our network of cycleways are making it safer and easier for people to cycle. More people cycling eases the pressure on our roads.

Where

88 Main South Rd near the intersection of Coleman Ave.

When

***NIGHT WORKS: Work will start on 2 May 2021 and is expected to be completed by mid May 2021 (weather dependent). Work will be undertaken between Sunday to Thursday, 7pm to 6am.

Contact

The contractor is Downer. Phone 027 459 6676 between Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm.

Details

What you need to know:

  • We will be installing new drainage, kerbing, ducting and traffic signal upgrades, which will involve excavating across the intersection at a number of locations.
  • During the night the intersection will remain open but will reduced to one lane on Curletts Road.
  • The two lanes will be reopened at 6am each day.

Traffic Impacts

This work must be done during the night when traffic flows are reduced. Doing this during the day would cause excessive congestion and increase journey times for the travelling public.

At night, from 7pm, alternating lane closures will allow works to be carried out without needing to detour traffic. Some minor delays may be experienced. Normal passage of traffic will be restored by 6am each day.

Noise Impacts

Regrettably these works will generate some noise which is unavoidable. You will notice machinery, light and noise coming from the site. However, to minimise disruption to residents we will endeavour to undertake particularly noisy activities at the start of the shift and aim to complete these by 10pm.
