A number of out-of-hours construction activities are required to complete remaining light rail works on Flemington Road, between the Federal Highway and Well Station Drive. Some of the activities will include applying asphalt treatments to Flemington Road, kerb installation, landscaping, electrical work, signal and overhead wiring work and footpath removal and installation.
Traffic Management and Detours:
Road closures and lane reductions may be required. Updates on when these occur and their corresponding detours will be promoted on Traffic management will be operational and highly visible throughout the works, including signage and personnel.
The equipment to be used includes: a road roller, light vehicles, lighting towers, milling and asphalt laying equipment, line marking equipment, saw cutting equipment, compaction equipment, vacuum trucks, excavators, elevated working platforms and hydraulic hammers.
The project team will ensure the number of machines operating at the same time is limited and equipment turned off when not in use. Non-tonal reversing beepers will be used* and workers will be instructed to keep noise to a minimum.
These works are designed to transform Canberra, making it more accessible and to provide greater commuter connectivity across an integrated public transport network. We appreciate the continued patience of the public and the support of the Canberra community as we carry out these works.
