Have a say on proposed night work on the M4 Motorway at Merrylands
26 November 2015
Roads and Maritime Services is inviting community feedback on a proposal to carry out essential night maintenance work from February 2016 on the M4 Motorway bridge above Burnett Street at Merrylands to improve safety.
“The NSW Government is funding a $270,000 maintenance project to improve safety on the M4 Motorway to provide a stronger and more durable bridge above Burnett Street,” A Roads and Maritime Spokesperson said.
“Roads and Maritime is seeking community feedback by Monday 30 November on a proposal to work up to four nights a week for a five week period from February 2016.
“The work will include replacing the existing bridge joints to enhance safety, extending the life of the structure and ensuring it continues to serve the community into the future.
“To reduce the impact for motorists using the busy motorway, work would be carried out at night from Sundays to Fridays between 8pm and 5am.
“There is an alternative option to carry out work for three months working no more than two nights a week.
“To reduce the impact on nearby residents and businesses, loud work including saw cutting, jackhammering and air blasting the road surface will take place between 8pm and 12pm.
“All community feedback will be considered to further develop the proposed work hours and the community will continue to be updated as the project progresses,” A Roads and Maritime spokesperson said.
Roads and Maritime Services encourages community members to provide comments by Monday 30 November to Roads and Maritime Services PO Box 6465 North Ryde NSW 2113 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
