Clearing of trees and earthworks for the road widening have begun with Council work crews. Council’s contractors have begun the laying of over 1km of stormwater drainage. Works are progressing, however the location of conflicting service mains has caused some delay and redesign.
Forest Road – Bloomfield
The road formation was completed and kerbs and median islands poured in the area adjacent to the base hospital. Works progressed on laying drainage pipes north of the hospital entrance and Council’s contractor completing some road crossings for services for the new private hospital via direct engagement from the development proponent.
Forest Road – Spring Hill
A seal was placed on the newly widened and strengthened pavement at Spring Hill. New guard rail was installed on the Northern side of Forest Road at the Beasley road intersection.
The dead end of Wicks Road was reshaped and sealed to address the effects of overland flow on some downstream properties.
Taxiway Delta was stripped and resealed.
Hot Mix Asphalt
Council’s contractors undertook pavement repairs at Mitchell Parade and Tynan Street at their intersection with Anson Street.
