Portarlington North East Group - Road construction update 16 August 2017

Wednesday, 16 August 2017 4:09 PM

Road works within the Portarlington North East Group of Roads are continuing over the winter months and we are excited to know that the end is getting closer every day.

Drainage works

The contractor has completed the majority of driveway culverts which is great to see.  

Mercer street road closures are in effect whilst the contractor complete the drainage crossings and pit constructions in the middle of the street. The contractor hopes to complete all drainage works on Mercer Street by Friday 18 August 2017.  

However the weather may play a part and extend that deadline.  

Road works

The new kerb and channel has been completed in Simson Street. Backfilling works and drainage works behind the new kerb are currently taking place.

Depending on the outcome of proof rolling, the class 3 and 2 layers of rock can be laid in the kerbed section of Simson Street, and along Fenwick Street from Fairfax to Mercer Streets.   

Looking forward

From next week the contractor will send the drainage crew north of Newcomb Street to start drainage works along Drysdale Street.

Regular updates will continue as we progress to the warmer weather and the road sealing begins.
