Project Description

Geotechnical investigations have shown that there is limited pavement material beneath 100mm asphalt layer. High silt and clay content has caused ongoing pavement failures which have been largely dealt with via surface reseals. The road requires full reconstruction with a fully designed pavement for the heavy vehicle loading on the road segments between Tamar Street, Willis Street and Lawrence Street.

Replace pavement sub base, pavement base, surface. Need to raise the kerb and replace footpath seal on both sides of the road segment. New sub soil drains are required to protect new the pavement and new stormwater infrastructure will be installed to service the sub soil drain as existing stormwater infrastructure will not be deep enough.

Total cost of proposed project is $1,169,781
