Early works notification – site investigations
As part of The Joy Baluch AM Bridge Duplication Project, The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that day and night site investigation works will be undertaken in various locations on the eastern and western sides and surrounds of the Joy Baluch AM Bridge.
Timing of works:
Intermittent works will commence in mid-December 2018 and continue until late January 2019.
It is anticipated that activities which will have impact on traffic flow will occur at night between the hours of 7:00pm and 6:00am. However, there will be some day works (predominantly off the road) that will be undertaken between 7:00am and 6:00pm.
Works undertaken will include:
- Locating existing services
- Geotechnical and pavement investigations
- Noise assessments
- Flora and fauna assessments
- Non-Aboriginal and Aboriginal Heritage surveys
What to expect:
Temporary and minor traffic restrictions may apply in the vicinity of the works at times. Signage will be in place to alert road users to any changes to traffic conditions.
During the works you may notice the increased presence of machinery as well as ground personnel. Some minor noise disturbance can be expected at times.
Works will be managed to minimise disruption to all road users and the local community. Advance notification will be given, should any properties be directly impacted by these works.
