Have a say on night work on Princes Highway and Rocky Point Road in Kogarah
17 NOVEMBER 2015
Roads and Maritime Services is inviting community feedback on proposed night work to upgrade the Princes Highway and Rocky Point Road at Kogarah.
The night work will deliver a stronger, longer lasting and safer road for local road users and residents.
“Roads and Maritime is inviting community feedback on a proposal to work up to five nights a week for seven weeks, starting in January 2016, to deliver this essential maintenance work for the local community,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.
The work will include repairing concrete kerbs and median strips, service and utility adjustment and repair, as well as road diamond grinding and line marking.
“In order to limit the impact of noise on residents and road users, work would be carried out at night with noisy work like jackhammering and breaking concrete until midnight only.”
During shifts where work includes diamond grinding, Roads and Maritime will work continuously throughout the shift on different sections of the road.
Diamond grinding provides a longer lasting road surface than conventional asphalt, reducing maintenance costs. The surface treatment also reduces traffic noise compared to other road surfaces and provides better grip.
“We welcome feedback and would appreciate comments on the proposed night work schedule by Friday 11 December 2015,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.
“Feedback will be reviewed and the community updated as the project progresses.”
