Other Major Projects
Future Cities Upgrade – Byng Street and Lords Place
The Byng Street and Lords Place upgrade is proceeding well. Work is currently underway on concreting the western footpath and completing the footpath adjacent to Robertson Park. Next week work will commence on the widening of the roundabout and preparation for median islands. Concurrently it is anticipated excavating the exposed aggregate footpath adjacent surrounding the Civic Centre in preparation for the new footpath construction. The current date for Practical Completion by AWCON on this project is 5 September 2021, however, it is anticipated that subject to weather resurfacing of the road can occur prior to this date.
Future Cities Upgrade – McNamara Lane
Availability of subcontractors and weather are impacting on this project. The current programme will see the tree pit surrounds completed by Friday 25 June 2021. This will be followed by the milling out of McNamara Street on Monday 28 June 2021 and resurfacing occurring on the 29 and 30 June 2021. It is hoped that weather conditions will allow the carpark to be prepared for surfacing on 1 July 2021.
The paving of the tree pit surrounds and the installation of festoon poles will occur in July.
