Project benefits

Once complete, the project will:

  • improve safety and connectivity for all road users, with dedicated turn pockets, an extension of the on-road bike lanes and new pedestrian crossing islands
  • enhance accessibility for visitors to Hidden World Park with formal on-street parking
  • provide safe and continuous cycle and pedestrian facilities, enhancing connectivity for active travellers on Roghan Road.

Timing

Works are anticipated to start from early August 2021 and are expected to be completed in late 2021, weather and construction conditions permitting.

Works will be undertaken during the day, between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday, to minimise impacts for local residents.  Should any out-of-hours works be required, Council will provide advance notice to the community prior to works starting.

Impacts during construction

Every effort will be made to minimise disruption to the local community during this work. Advance notification of particularly noisy works or major access changes, including driveway disruptions, will be provided to properties within the works area.

Residents will experience increased levels of noise, dust and vehicle movements during some construction activities, particularly those involving the use of heavy machinery.

Informal parking in the gravel verge outside Hidden World Park will be unavailable during construction. Parking will re-open once the project is complete.

Environmental impacts

Council will also be removing 33 trees to facilitate the project, including 16 native trees, 14 pest species trees and two dead trees. The trees being removed range in size and include some mature River Tamarind trees near Hidden World Park.

Council will re-plant 16 trees nearby and undertake further replanting in the local area in accordance with our offset planting policy and the relevant environmental guidelines.

All work will be carried out in accordance with relevant environmental guidelines and with a qualified arborist.

Traffic impacts

The project team will work with the community to minimise traffic disruption and inconvenience throughout the duration of the project.

Temporary traffic changes, such as traffic lane and footpath closures will be required to complete the works, and motorists and cyclists should expect delays when travelling through the area.

The speed limit in the area will be reduced to 40km/h for the duration of the works. Safety is Council’s number one priority. Please drive carefully. Traffic controllers and signage will be in place to direct motorists, cyclists and pedestrians around the works. Please look for warning signage and follow the direction of traffic controllers.
