Retaining wall at Kensington gets a facelift


Motorists and the community are advised essential maintenance work is being carried out on the eastern side of Southern Cross Drive at Kensington to repair a retaining wall.

A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the work is being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $1.5 billion maintenance program which helps maintain and improve roads across the state.

“Essential maintenance work is being carried out on the existing retaining wall adjacent to the Australian Golf Club to improve road user safety and reduce ongoing future maintenance requirements,” the spokesperson said.

“Work involves removing vegetation as well as stabilising and concreting the retaining wall to preserve the life of the existing structure.”

The spokesperson said work will be carried out until Sunday 18 March 2018, weather permitting.

“Crews will be onsite on weekdays from 7am to 6pm with some night work scheduled to be carried out from 9pm to 5am, excluding Saturdays,” the spokesperson said.

“Work is expected to take around 55 day shifts and 25 night shifts to complete and may be noisy at times but all measures will be taken to minimise impact to residents.

“Work will not be carried out during the Christmas/New Year holidays from Sunday 24 December 2017 to Friday 5 January 2018 inclusive.”

Traffic control and lane closures will be in place for the safety of workers and motorists.

Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.

Roads and Maritime Services thanks the community for its patience while work is carried out.
