A Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) spokesperson today invited the community to attend a drop-in session to learn more about the maintenance work on Railway Road between Unwins Bridge Road and Princes Highway at Sydenham.
“Community members with an interest in the work are welcome to visit the project team at any time between 3pm and 5pm on Saturday 4 August at the site office on the corner of Henry Street and Railway Road,” the spokesperson said.
“The project team will be available to answer any questions you may have about the ongoing work.
“RMS has completed work on the city side of Railway Road from Henry Street to Princes Highway as well as work at the intersection on the western side of the Princes Highway and Railway Road.
“RMS is now nearing completion of drainage work from Unwins Bridge Road to Henry Street.
“Due to the success of work to date RMS has agreed to Marrickville Council’s request to extend the work to include a full road rebuild of the Tempe side of Railway Road from Unwins Bridge Road to Henry Street.
“This work will provide a new road surface and drainage for all four lanes of Railway Road from Unwins Bridge Road to Princes Highway.
“New footpaths and pram ramps will also be built and bicycle safe grates will be installed to improve pedestrian and cyclist access and safety.
“When completed the $2.9 million State funded repair work will provide a safer road with lower maintenance costs for Railway Road,” the spokesperson said.
Work will be carried out at night between 8pm and 5am and is scheduled for completion in October, weather permitting.
