- Tanilba Road, Mallabula – Road Upgrade: Works have continued trimming up the footway areas and preparing for landscaping. We are experiencing delays (not unique to this project or contractor) due to the lack of available road pavement gravel from quarries. The primer spray seal is now scheduled for early April and final asphalt and linemarking is to come in mid to late-April.
- Clarence Town Road, Seaham – Road Upgrade: Progress has continued on shaping batters and swale drains. The new asphalt wearing course, including some additional scope to resurface the entire intersection with Dixon Street, has been completed. Linemarking will be completed next week.
- Clarence Town Rd, Glen Oak Segment 230-250 – Road Upgrade: Progress continued with placement, compaction and trimming of new road pavement. Road pavement progress has now reached the full extent of the project. The widening of the second side of Storks Creek Bridge for the safety barrier concrete strip footings is nearing completion. Safety barrier installation commenced this week, with our contractors progressing well on installing over 1000m of new guardrail.
- Seaham & Hinton Rd, Nelsons Plains – Road Upgrade: Our construction team will complete batters, driveway connections and tidy up the site once weather permits and the site dries out sufficiently for works to progress.
- Gan Gan Rd, Nelson Bay – Road Upgrade: Our construction team continues progress on road pavement for the road widening. New kerb and gutter through the sand hill cutting has now been completed. This project is also experiencing delays in obtaining road pavement gravel from quarries (including as far as upper Hunter and mid-north coast) – this is an emerging issue impacting all civil infrastructure works across the Region.
- Adelaide St, Raymond Terrace – Pedestrian Crossing Upgrade: Next week we will commence the next Blackspot grant funded project. This project along Adelaide Street near Kent Street and Coonanbarra Street will provide upgrades to the existing pedestrian crossing; including kerb extensions to narrow the crossing, new longer centre median, drainage upgrades, lighting upgrades, new footpath connections and improved high friction road surface. A new gateway entry treatment will also be installed at the 50K speed zone change. To ensure compliance with pedestrian crossings, this project will reduce the two travel lanes to only one travel lane in the northbound direction, with the southbound lane remaining unchanged. Work will commence from Tuesday 28th March and traffic control will be in place to manage work zone speeds
- Brandon Park Sporting Facilities, Seaham: Works are continuing on the upgrades to the sporting facilities at Brandon Park. This week saw the installation of the new Multi-Sport Court. The new Accessible Amenities Block will get underway in April, with all works on-site scheduled to be finalised by mid-year.
- Anzac Park, Raymond Terrace: Works are almost complete on the upgrade to Anzac Park. This week has seen the installation of the new Memorial Wall adjacent to the Bowls Club. A few minor elements including lighting are still to come, but the site will be ready for Anzac Day.
