Progress of works
To date, the following works have been delivered:
- Construction of new brick paved footpaths, crossovers and al fresco areas
- Construction of new kerbs and realigned parking bays
- Installation of new street furniture and construction of new bus stop
- Below ground works to install irrigation and power cabling
- Planting and mulching
Unfortunately, the Town's contractors experienced a number of issues over the summer months that caused the original delivery timeframe to be extended.
Due to Western Power scheduling, underground power cannot be installed at the project site until late 2022. The Town cannot install the new street lights until the underground power works are carried out, so this section of the project will be delayed until the NRUPP works are complete.
To ensure that the underground power works can take place later this year with as little disruption as possible, all below ground power works have already been completed.
In April 2022, tree plantings, finishing touches and tidying up of the roundabouts was carried out, with the final roundabout plantings to be completed when the irrigation system is connected by Western Power in June.
Final road markings are being applied this month ahead of our launch event – keep an eye out on our channels for more details coming soon.
