About the project

The Dorville Road improvements project is an initiative of the Australian Government and is funded under the Local Road and Community Infrastructure grant program.

The project will include:

  • widening Dorville Road to provide a new on road parking lane between Cabbage Tree Creek and the Kingfisher Recycling Centre
  • formalising the eastern road edge with new kerb and channel
  • replacing a 90-metre section of footpath on the eastern side of Dorville Road
  • resurfacing the road between Cabbage Tree Creek and the Kingfisher Recycling Centre
  • road line marking, landscaping and turf.

Please refer to the project plan for more information.

Project timing

Works will take place from Monday 27 September 2021 and will be completed late 2021, weather and site conditions permitting.

Construction

Construction works are planned to take place during the day from Monday to Friday between 7am and 5pm.

Some night works will also be required and will take place from Sunday to Thursday, between 7pm and 5am, when traffic and pedestrian volumes are lowest, to ensure the safety of motorists and workers and to minimise traffic disruptions.

Council is committed to keeping the local community informed of construction activity in their area and will provide advanced notification of any out-of-hours works to affected residents and businesses near to the work area.

What the community can expect

Throughout the project, residents in close proximity may experience construction noise including saw cutting, excavation works and asphalting and profiling works. Residents may also experience noise from increased truck movements as well as low levels of vibration and dust. Due to workplace health and safety, reversing cameras cannot be switched off.

Temporary lane closures and reduced speed limits will be in place throughout construction. Road users may experience temporary changed traffic conditions and should expect delays when travelling through the area. Traffic controllers and signage will be on site to safely direct road users and pedestrians as needed.

A detour will be in place to safely divert pedestrians and cyclists to the western side of Dorville Road while the footpath upgrade is being completed on the eastern side. Signs and markers will be in place to safely direct pedestrians and cyclists through the area while this detour is in place.

Environmental impact

Council has identified one large tree which needs to be removed as part of the project. The tree is located within the road reserve on the eastern side of Dorville Road and is being removed to facilitate the construction of the new footpath and parking lane. Tree removal will be undertaken in consultation with a Council arborist and all works will be undertaken in accordance with Council’s offset policies and legislative requirements.

All works will be carried out in accordance with the relevant environmental guidelines and Council will make every effort to minimise environmental impacts during construction.
