Traffic control will be in place during the works with Sturgeon Street closed to general traffic for a large duration of the works from mid-June into August.

Access will be maintained for essential services (such as emergency services, post and garbage collection), resident access and church services. Residents are asked to follow the directions of traffic controllers for their own safety.

Project Background:

Sturgeon Street is a local road linking the Raymond Terrace town centre to residential areas and Raymond Terrace Public School. It is used by pedestrians and vehicles (including school buses).

The current pavement consists of a narrow sealed section along the full length of road with unsealed pavement between edge of seal and kerb on both sides of the road. Average width of sealed pavement is 5.5-6m and average width of unsealed pavement is 8m each side of road. Transition from sealed to unsealed pavement has led to accelerated pavement deterioration and damaged shoulders.

Rehabilitating and upgrading this section of Sturgeon St will improve safety and access for all road users and provide a level of service expected by the surrounding community.

Project Aims:

Improve the condition of the existing road infrastructure, formalise the roadside parking areas and improve safety for road users and pedestrians (refer to the below map of planned works).

Project Scope:
  • Formalise travel lanes and roadside parking areas
  • Replace existing kerbing on both sides of the road
  • Introduce kerbing around trees and mulch beneath trees
  • Minor stormwater improvements
  • Upgrade road surface to asphalt
  • Implement tree protection measures to retain the tree-lined streetscape
