Our South West Region is continuing a project to improve South Western Highway near Donnybrook.
Traffic delays are expected as the reconstruction works involve repairing the existing road pavement.
Speed restrictions and traffic management are in place as the work process involves excavating 800 mm down through the road pavement and backfilling with a sand drainage layer, limestone pavement and placing asphalt as a finished surface layer. We may need to turn off water if there are problems with water pipes in 800 mm depth (work area). Some older pipes may be leaking and we will need to replace these.
Work times will generally be 7am – 6pm Monday to Friday. The works will generate noise, so nightworks will not be undertaken given the close proximity of residents to the highway.
Generally, businesses should only be impacted for one day, or potentially two if we discover additional issues. Alternative accesses will be available to ensure people can continue to support local businesses.
The key impacts of these works include:
We appreciate your patience in delivering these works, and apologise in advance for any inconvenience.
