Community info session for Chambers Flat Road Upgrades

Plans for a $20 million upgrade to Chambers Flat Road from the Mt Lindesay Hwy interchange to Kings Way are in the final stages.

City Roads and Water Committee Chairman, Councillor Phil Pidgeon, said the project would provide enhanced safety and capacity for growth to reduce congestion, offer greater flood immunity, and feature improved intersections.

“The road will remain as a two-lane road but with wider traffic lanes, and Norris Creek Bridge will be raised by up to eight metres, providing notable improvements to access during periods of flooding,” he said.

Cr Pidgeon said while the road alignment will generally stay the same, the upgraded road will be wider and higher in certain locations, meaning some partial land acquisitions will be required around the existing corridor to complete the project.

“We have sent letters to directly-impacted property owners and residents and been in further contact with these people to guide them through the process,” he said.

“We will also be holding a community drop in session on Saturday, October 20, 2018 for those interested to view the latest detailed designs and ask questions about the project.”

Detailed design is due to be completed by the end of 2018, with construction expected to start in mid-2019, pending final project and funding approvals.

Council will have large format maps of the road alignment on display, while project team members will be on hand to answer enquiries in relation to the design.

When:                  Saturday, October 20, 2018

Time:                    Drop by any time between 10am and 1pm

Where:                 Chambers Flat Community Centre, 49-65 Kenny Rd, Chambers Flat

If you are unable to attend, but wish to stay informed of the latest information, plans will be available on Council’s website by October 19.
