About the project
The works will help to reduce localised flooding, improve the local road and cycling network and improve traffic flow and safety of residents and other road users.
The existing street trees close to the drainage channel have adversely affected the surrounding road and drainage infrastructure. The tree roots have lifted the road pavement, kerbs and channels, which in turn has resulted in localised water ponding and in some locations, flooding of properties.
Works involves road reconstruction and re-positioning drainage channels, adding new bike lanes and forming tree pits to provide conditions for healthier street trees.
The works will also enable the buses to fully pull up to the kerb, improving traffic movement through the street.
What will it look like?
The artist impression above show the proposed works will:
- upgrade to a new road
- include a dedicated bicycle lane
- retain parking
- add new drainage pits
- expand tree pits to protect roots and retain run-off from the street
- add new bluestone edge strip
- add new concrete spoon drain
- extend driveways in concrete.
