Have your say on proposed night work on Boundary street at Roseville
10 February 2016
Roads and Maritime Services today invited the community to provide feedback by Friday 19 February on a proposal for night work to widen Boundary Street at Roseville in order to improve traffic conditions for motorists in the area.
“The NSW Government has allocated $20 million to upgrade the Pacific Highway and Melnotte Avenue as part of its $246 million Pinch Point Program which aims to reduce delays, manage congestion and maintain travel times on Sydney’s major roads,” a Roads and Maritime spokesperson said.
“Roads and Maritime Services is seeking the community’s feedback in order to develop a work plan to deliver the project which will minimise disruption to residents and road users.
“Under the proposed work plan, night work will be carried out up to five nights a week between 8pm and 5am excluding Saturdays, weather permitting. Additional work will also be carried out between 7am and 6pm on weekdays and between 8am and 1pm on Saturdays.
“The work is expected to take around eighteen months starting in late February 2016 and finishing midway through 2017.”
The Roads and Maritime spokesperson said every effort would be made to minimise disruptions to local residents, with all noisy work carried out before midnight throughout the project.
“Under the proposal, work from late February to May will include adjusting utilities, upgrading stormwater drainage and widening Boundary Street east of the railway bridge,” the spokesperson said.
“The work will continue from June to September with road widening carried out on Boundary Street west of the railway bridge and on the Pacific Highway.
“Road widening activity will continue until January 2017 along with work to provide new medians, asphalting, line marking and installing new traffic lights at the intersection of Boundary St and the Pacific Highway.”
Feedback will determine the final work plan and can be provided to DownerMouchel, Communication and Stakeholder Engagement at PO Box 6465, North Ryde NSW 2113 or by emailing email@example.com until Friday 19 February.
Roads and Maritime will continue to keep the community and stakeholders informed during the planning process to help identify issues and minimise potential impacts of the proposed upgrade.
