Contractors have advised the completion of night works at the northern end of Lake Albert Road have been delayed until next week.
The 380-metre stretch of the road from Warrawong Street to and including the Copland Street intersection is being resurfaced as part of the $4.8-million Lake Albert Road Rehabilitation program.
Director Infrastructure Services Warren Faulkner said the contractors have finished milling out the existing pavement and creating a new basecourse.
“It’s expected they will place the asphalt wearing course during night works early in the new week, weather permitting, creating a smoother and stronger surface for road users,” Mr Faulkner said.
“We are asking motorists to drive to the conditions while the project is ongoing.”
Lake Albert will be closed to through traffic at the roadworks site between 6pm to 6am from Monday 20 February to Thursday 23 February, with detours via Lord Baden Powell Drive and Railway Street.
Council’s program of road rehabilitation works is also progressing with the rehabilitation of Lloyd Road, from Plumpton Road to Holbrook Road, well underway.
Night works are scheduled for Nagle Street from 22 to 25 February, with the road to be sealed during the daytime on Saturday 25 February, weather permitting. Traffic will be diverted to the Sturt Highway and Copland Street while the road is closed.
Contractors are also expected to start night works in Copland Street in the second half of next weekto asphalt overlay the intersections with Blaxland Road, Lawson Street, Hartog Place and Say Street.
Traffic control measures are in place at all of these road work sites. Motorists are asked to plan their journeys and expect delays.
