Geotechnical investigations will be taking place in and around the future Ranford Road Station Precinct and Rail Corridor. Works include taking soil samples, digging, drilling activity, large vehicles and equipment and some initial, minor clearing activity.
The site investigation work, including the potholing, geotechnical testing and associated traffic management will be ongoing until July 2020.
To protect road users, as well as our workforce carrying out site investigation work.
Roadworks will be ongoing during off-peak times, when traffic volumes are lower, as per the below.
- From 9am until 3pm, Monday to Saturday
- From 6pm until 5am, nightly (note an earlier start and Sunday night shifts from 10 May 2020)
Ranford Road, northbound and southbound lanes, from north of Bannister Road to south of Livingston Drive, Canning Vale
Bannister Road, Clifton Road and Livingston Drive, Canning Vale
- Lane closures and temporary speed reductions
Footpath along the eastern most section of Marginata Parkway, Canning Vale
- Partial closures (day shift only, unless otherwise notified)
Sevenoaks Street, between Beckenham Street and Sydenham Street, Beckenham and O’Dell Street, near the intersection with Lester Drive, Thornlie
- For one day between 20 and 25 May 2020* there will be traffic management at the following location
- Roadworks advisory signage and traffic cones in place, 7am until 7pm
Access to properties will be maintained. Please proceed with caution, adhere to the speed limit and take note of directional signage.
These works, including night shift, large equipment and vehicle movements throughout the area may be noticeable to nearby residents. In an initiative to provide a safer workplace, during this period we will be trialing a Sunday to Thursday night shift roster. This will avoid crews being on and near the road during Friday and Saturday nights which are traditionally busier and therefore pose a higher risk to the workforce. Every effort will be made to reduce construction noise and a local government-approved noise management plan will be in place.
If you have questions about the upcoming works get in touch with us.
