As part of the Chambers Flat Road upgrade we will:
Widen the road to allow for wider 3.5m traffic lanes (while remaining as a two-lane road) and 3m wide sealed shoulders.
Improve flood protection along the road corridor by raising the road level and building a new bridge over Norris Creek (up to 8m higher than the existing level).
Improve sight distances at bends and crests to meet safe road design standards.
Improve intersection designs to allow for safer turning movements and enhance traffic flow. This includes providing dedicated turning lanes into Kings Way and Greenvale Road.
Install new road pavement and more efficient road drainage structures.
Relocate services, remove vegetation, install signage and carry out line marking and restoration activities.
Construction activities will take place in two stages:
an Early Works package
a Main Construction Works package.
Early works, including vegetation clearing, minor earthworks, service relocations and fence relocations are scheduled to begin in mid-2021. We expect to complete these by late 2021, pending weather and site conditions.
Main construction works will begin once early works are complete. We anticipate these will take approximately 12 months, pending weather and site conditions. We will advise a construction start date once known.
Early works are on track to be completed by late 2021, with main construction works expected to commence in early 2022, pending weather and site conditions.
Our contractor is working to finalise all vegetation clearing / trimming and fence reconstruction works by early 2022.
Service providers including, Energex and NBN will finalise all service relocations by early 2022. If a temporary disruption to your service is required, your service provider will notify you to advise when these works are scheduled to occur.
