Project name: Night work on Victoria Road, Drummoyne

Roads and Maritime Services is inviting feedback on a night work schedule that would allow us to complete the project as quickly as possible to minimise the disruption period for residents, businesses and road users.

We will be replacing 132 lights on the road that divide the lanes on Victoria Road Northbound near Park Ave, Drummoyne.

We will also be replacing 159 lights on the road that divide lanes on Victoria Road near Seymour Street, and Tavistock Street.

We propose working up to five nights a week for three weeks at each location, for 15 shifts, weather permitting. Our work hours would be between 9pm and 5am from Sunday to Friday. We would complete the noisier activities by midnight.

Our other construction work may still be noisy at times but we will do everything we can to minimise its impact, including putting up temporary noise barriers.

The alternative is working up to two nights a week and maximum of six nights in a month, which would extend the project to 11 weeks. Our work hours would be the same and we would still finish the noisiest work by midnight.

How can you give feedback?

We invite your feedback by Monday 10 July.
