Kamo Road Pavement Repairs and Resurfacing

 
This page contains information about the Kamo Road Pavement Repairs and Resurfacing roading project.
Updated: 5/02/2015 10:19 a.m.

Between September and December 2014 the entire section of Kamo Road (from Nixon Street to McClintock Street) will be upgraded. 

The works will be isolated to one side of the road or the other at any one time.  This will allow two way traffic flow but with reduced lane widths. 

Drivers when travelling along Kamo Road are advised to drive with caution and allow extra time to reach their destination.  

A two month programme is proposed which is divided into Three stages with the main pavement upgrade divided into Five phase.

Stage 1:

Kerb and footpath repairs over the first 3 weeks using manual traffic control.  This work will be isolated to the shoulder areas so at times parking may be limited.

Stage 2:

Pavement reconstruction between  Nixon Street and McClintock Street (refer map below)

Phase 1: Starting 6 October, digout and replace with asphalt concrete the northbound lane from the rail crossing to Mclintock Street. Percy Street and Park Avenue will be closed to traffic from Kamo Road while these works are being carried out. This work should take 4 days to complete.

Phase 2: Starting 10 October, digout and replace with asphalt concrete the Southbound lane from the rail crossing to Mclintock Street.  Moody Avenue will be closed to traffic from Kamo Road while these works are being carried out. This work should take 4 days to complete.

Phase 3: Starting 14 October, digout and replace with asphalt concrete the Northbound lane from Manse Street to the rail crossing.  Simons Street will be closed to traffic from Kamo Road while these works are being carried out. This work should take 4 days to complete.

Phase 4: Starting 19 October, digout and replace with asphalt concrete the Southbound lane from Manse Street to the rail crossing.  Keyte Street, King Street and Manse Street will be closed to traffic from Kamo Road while these works are being carried out. This work should take 4 days to complete.

Phase 5: Reconstruction of the railway crossing approaches.  This work will start on the completion of phases 1 to 4 and  take approximately 2 days with manual traffic control. Drivers are advised that delays will be expected and should allow for increased journey time while this work is being carried out as traffic will be one way only.  The work will be carried out between the morning and afternoon peaks and between this time drivers are encouraged to seek alternative routes to avoid the work.

Stage 3:

Hotmix surface overlay.  This work will be carried out at night and is expected to take 4 nights to complete. At this stage it is expected that the work will start after phase and Labour weekend. There will be an update to confirm this work once the stage 2 works are complete.

We will continue to update the above programme where weather may affect progress to ensure we are minimising impact to the public.
