About the project

Investigation and design work to signalise the Rickertt Road and Chelsea Road intersection at Ransome has commenced, with detailed design expected to be completed late 2020.

To help finalise the detailed design, some investigation works will be required at the intersection of Rickertt Road and Chelsea Road.

Council will be undertaking potholing activities from Tuesday 18 August 2020. These works are expected to take approximately one week to complete, weather and site conditions permitting. Works will involve vacuum excavation and reinstatement of excavation using compactors. 

The investigation works will generally be undertaken during the day between 7am-5pm, Monday to Saturday, weather permitting. Advance notice of any out-of-hours works will be provided.

During the survey and investigation works, residents and businesses in proximity may experience some low-level noise and vibration. Due to workplace health and safety requirements, reversing beepers cannot be switched off.

Council will make every effort to minimise disruption during these works. Traffic control will be in place when required to ensure the safety of all road users moving through the area. 

Further information about the project will be provided to the local community, as detailed design of the project progresses.

The project is jointly funded by Council and the Australian Government through the Urban Congestion Fund.

Project benefits

Once complete, community benefits include:

  • improved safety for road users and pedestrians at the intersection
  • improved connectivity for local residents and, cyclists and people travelling through the area encouraging active transport.
