From Tuesday, 5 December we will be working on the intersections of Petrie Street and Averill Street. This is part of the Richmond neighbourhood greenway cycle connection project.

We will be installing:

  • New kerb and channel and footpaths.
  • New garden beds and landscaping.
  • New drainage on Petrie Street.
  • Traffic calming speed humps and line markings to reinforce slower speeds and promote a shared road environment.

Potential impacts on traffic:

  • Where road closures will be in place, please follow the posted detour route.
  • Where pedestrian access to footpaths will be impacted detours will be in place. Please follow the signage.
  • Cyclists may need to merge with traffic through the work area.
  • Speed will be reduced to 30km/h through the work area.

Potential impacts of work

  • On-Street parking will be affected on both sides of the road where we are working.
  • Where possible we will keep work areas small.
  • Road cones and signage will indicate where parking and driveway access is not available.
  • Property access will be maintained where possible. We will keep businesses and residents informed and updated of any changes.
  • Please let us know if you have any specific property access needs. e.g., medical visits, home help, large vehicle deliveries or planned work.
  • There will be increased noise, dust, and vibration from the use of machinery for activities such as saw cutting, excavation, and compaction.
