Night work starts to improve safety on Wattle Street at Pyrmont
Parliamentary Secretary for Transport and Roads, John Ajaka MLC today announced night work will be carried out on Wattle Street between Pyrmont Bridge Road and Broadway at Pyrmont to improve the surface of the road, install new kerbs and trim overhanging tree branches.
“The $750,000 NSW Government funded project aims to improve road safety for all road users by replacing concrete slabs and asphalt on the road, installing new sections of kerb and bicycle safe grates for a smoother cycle on the road,” Mr Ajaka said.
“Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) will carry out night work from Monday 27 May until the end of June when final line marking will be carried out, weather permitting. “RMS will carry out the work from Sundays to Fridays between 8pm and 5am and partial lane closures will be required to create a safe work space. “Residents are advised street parking will be restricted from 7pm on certain sections of Wattle Street. “Every effort will be made to minimise noise and electronic signs and traffic controllers will be in place to direct motorists. “The NSW Government thanks residents and motorists for their patience while the work is carried out.
“For information on the work call RMS project engineer Ronald Ip on (02) 9598 7842 or email Ronald.Ip@rms.nsw.gov.au,” Mr Ajaka said.
