Major work starts to install Canberra Avenue noise walls
Roads Minister Duncan Gay and Member for Monaro John Barilaro today announced major work will start next week to install noise walls on Canberra Avenue at Queanbeyan.
“I am extremely pleased to be here today with the hard-working local member, John Barilaro, to announce that the NSW Government has provided $3.25 million this financial year to complete the design and build your much needed noise walls,” Mr Gay said.
“The installation of a noise wall along two kilometres of the road will help reduce noise for hundreds of residents living along this corridor.
“The noise wall will vary in height from 2.5 metres to 3.5 metres along the length of the project.
“Three homes and a unit block in the area will also be provided with individual noise reduction measures.
“Work on the noise walls will start next week and is expected to be completed by the end of the year, weather permitting,” Mr Gay said.
Mr Barilaro welcomed the announcement.
“We are very pleased that the NSW Government’s delivery of this important work to reduce noise for local residents is about to start,” Mr Barilaro said.
Work will be carried out from Monday to Friday from 7am to 6pm and 8am to 1pm on Saturday, with a reduced speed limit of 40km/h throughout the work zone. There will also be lane and shoulder closures at different times throughout the work.
The work will extend the 660 metres of noise wall installed next to Nimmitabel Street.
