Link road asphalting works
Tuesday 11 December (Normal working hours)
The hot weather last week made it impossible for the contractors to be able to complete the asphalting of the new link road in time for line marking today.
Asphalting work on this section will now occur on Tuesday 11 December in preparation for opening of the link road at around 6pm the same day
Final Asphalting Layer
Saturday 15 December (between 7am and 6pm)
To finalise the link road, the project team will be asphalting a section of Bowen Lane to bring the roadway up to footpath level and create a level pedestrian crossing across Bowen Lane.
Following these works, a final layer of asphalt (the wearing course) will be applied. These works will result in the following changes:
These asphalting works will require closure of the footpath between Bowen Crescent and Bowen Lane. Road and footpath access down Bowen Lane will also be closed.
During this time pedestrians will be diverted via Bowen Crescent, Kings Way and Albert Road.
Botanica Driveway Access
On Saturday, between 7am and 6pm, Botanica residents in the basement carpark will be required to enter and exist using Bowen Crescent.
During recent changes we have encountered issues when works finish early and driveway access is switched back ahead of the advertised time.
Please note, that should the works on the Bowen Lane/Albert Road intersection finish early, traffic controllers will remain on site until 6pm to allow residents enter and exit the carpark using both Bowen Lane and Bowen Crescent.
We apologise for the confusion caused by the late changes to works sequencing on Saturday. We understand this caused inconvenience to come residents and for that we are sincerely sorry.
Please note that Botanica residents using the basement carpark will continue to enter and exit using Bowen Lane for the remainder of this week and from Tuesday 11 December at 6pm the Albert Road exit will be open.
The existing works on the footpath are expected to be completed on Tuesday 11 December. Whilst pedestrian diversions are in place on Saturday 15 December, we will take the opportunity to reinstate the footpath outside 390 and 400 St Kilda Road where the HV cable relocation works have taken place. These works will include removal of the metal plates, backfilling and asphalting and create some periods of medium level noise. Access to residential buildings and businesses will be maintained at all times.
We appreciate that this piece of work has taken longer than anticipated.
Thank you for your ongoing patience.
