The City of Melville is undertaking road rehabilitation projects at night to improve the experience for road users, upgrading existing pavement with stabilisation, profiling and asphalt works, as well as minor drainage and kerb upgrades.
City of Melville Mayor, George Gear JP, said Traffic Managements Plans had been designed and approved for the projects, in line with Australian Standards, Austroads and Main Roads WA’s Code of Practice.
“We know that the community values sustainable and connected transport, and so these upgrades will allow road users such as drivers and cyclists to safely travel along Murdoch Drive and Riseley Street,” Mayor Gear said.
“The Traffic Management Plans will ensure the safety of the workers and road users, while minimising the disruption to traffic and the inconvenience for directly impacted residents.
“We ask road users to keep in mind that the road work dates are subject to interruptions or changes due to inclement weather conditions, the progress of works or unforeseen circumstances.
“Due to the volume of traffic, available detours, and proximity to Leach Highway, the majority of these works need to be undertaken at night.
“A Noise Management Plan has also been prepared and approved to ensure that the expected noise levels are constantly monitored and kept to a minimum, as far as practicable to ensure minimal impact on residents.”
