Forsyth Street works completed - 13 February 2015

In just four weeks, the Forsyth Street rehabilitation works are complete.

Contractors were busy sealing the surface today and the section of road between Docker and Murray streets is now open to all traffic.

Wagga Wagga City Council’s Director Infrastructure Services Heinz Kausche praised the efforts of everyone involved who helped complete the project on schedule.

“It’s taken about four weeks and now this road is reopened and ready to last another 30 years,” Mr Kausche said.

“I’d like to thank not only the Council staff and contractors who helped complete these works so efficiently, but the business owners and residents for their patience and support while these important works took place.

“Workers have happily committed weekends and extra time to ensure the rehabilitation project was completed as quickly as possible to minimise disruption to residents and businesses.

“After working with the businesses throughout this project, it’s pleasing to see the road reopened to all traffic.”

The project got under way on 15 January and in that time Council staff have also undertaken other vital works that arose such as repairs to the stormwater drainage system including a new stormwater pit, replacement of some kerb and guttering, new sewer manhole lids and a repaired driveway.

Mr Kausche reminded motorists and cyclists to take care while travelling along the new section of road as the fresh surface stabilises. The road will also be monitored for loose stones on the surface and will be swept away as necessary.
