Night work on Olympic Drive at Lidcombe

Motorists are advised work will be carried out on Olympic Drive from Church Street to Boorea Street at Lidcombe to provide a more durable road surface and increase safety starting on Monday 13 January 2014.

“The NSW Government provided $600,000 toward the project,” Parliamentary Secretary for Transport and Roads Ray Williams MP said.

“Work will be carried out in two stages. Stage one will include replacing concrete slabs, and new line marking.

“The work will be carried out for about two weeks from 8pm to 5am, excluding Saturdays, weather permitting. Noisy work will only be conducted from 8pm to 11pm with minimal noise after this time,” Mr Williams said.

Roads and Maritime will provide advance notice of the remaining work which will involve diamond grinding.

Diamond grinding is a noisy operation and is a process where the concrete road layer is ground down to a finely textured, grooved finish.

Partial road closures will be in place while work is carried out to ensure safety for workers and motorists.

Minor delays are expected and every effort will be made to minimise noise and disruption to motorists and residents.

Motorists are reminded to obey all signs including reduced speed limits.

This project is part of Roads and Maritime’s commitment to deliver safe, efficient and high quality services and infrastructure to the community and businesses of NSW.
