Project Description

Commercial Street East is one of the heaviest trafficked roads in the city and the extraordinary wet months of winter have accelerated the rate of deteriation of the road pavement (evidenced by the pavement material being "pumped" up through the surface cracks) and it is timely to address this problem as a matter of irgency.

The proposal is to remove the cracked areas of road pavement to a predetermined design depth and replace with assphalt. Commercial Street East carries very high traffic volumes (it is the highest trafficked road in the City) and it imperative that the works are carried out quickly and with minimum delays. The new aspalt will strenghten the road pavement and also provide a long lasting and smooth surface for traffic.
