BP Kewdale White Oil Line relocation (ongoing)
Around 11km of the Kewdale White-Oil Line will be relocated. Work will take place in the freight rail corridor between the Kenwick Rail Tunnel and the Glen Iris Rail Tunnel, through Kenwick, Thornlie, Canning Vale and Jandakot.
Pipe relocation work will involve drilling, trenching, and pipe preparation, including welding.
Some work is close to residential properties and will be progressively established, involving clearing, fencing and delivery of materials.
There will be regular delivery of materials to and from the site and some local roads will need to be used to access the rail corridor and pipe relocation work sites.
Station works (ongoing)
Construction is ongoing for a new bridge over the railway at Ranford Road, Canning Vale providing a longer and higher bridge to accommodate the new electric passenger trains within the existing rail corridor.
- delivery and stockpiling of materials and equipment;
- relocation of various utilities (including gas, water and drainage pipelines, telecommunications and power cables);
- earth moving and other civil works;
- road construction;
- night works until November 2021;
- traffic management including a speed limit reduction to 40km/hr Ranford Road between Livingstone Drive and Bannister Road; and
- altered signals and traffic configuration at the Ranford Road / Bannister Road intersection
The Ranford Road Station Precinct involves construction on a former landfill site. Work on this contaminated site will be carefully managed and follow a Site Management Plan approved by the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation.
Wilfred Road Access to the City of Canning Waste Transfer Station
Access to the City of Canning Waster Transfer Station is via Wilfred Road for all traffic, except for operational vehicles.
This temporary arrangement will facilitate the construction of the new Ranford Road Bridge.
Signage has been installed advising road users of the changed access arrangements, which will result in extra travel time for waste transfer station users.
Construction work along Ranford Road and near the waste transfer station is ongoing. Waste transfer operational vehicles will continue to use the construction access off Ranford Road.
Long term closure of Livingstone Drive (until late-2021)
A long-term temporary closure of Livingstone Drive at Ranford Road is in place to build the new Ranford Road bridge and traffic lanes.
Livingstone Drive is closed at Ranford Road. Rural residential properties need to access Ranford Road via Wilfred Road.
Changed traffic conditions will result in extra travel time for commuters. Traffic management signage on Ranford Road (between Wilfred Road and Bannister Road) is in place, including reduced travel speeds. Significant construction work is taking place inside the construction site alongside Ranford Road.
Underground gas pipeline relocation (ongoing)
Before operation, the relocated underground gas pipeline will be tested, including the introduction of gas in a controlled and systematic way. Abandoned pipe sections will be excavated, cut into lengths and taken off-site by trucks.
These works will occur in two locations; within the Arc Infrastructure freight rail corridor near Ranford Road Bridge, Canning Vale and the PTA passenger rail corridor near Kwinana Freeway, Jandakot.
Water main relocation works (until late-September 2021)
To relocate water mains, underground tunnelling works are required to be completed by using a micro tunnel boring machine. Welding, grinding, excavating and movement of materials will occur as part of the works.
Works will occur Monday to Sunday 7am-7pm, with additional out of hours works (7pm-7am) Monday to Saturday.
Earth works and bridge construction (until mid-November 2021)
Works will be conducted Monday to Friday, from 7pm-7am on the western verge of Ranford Road, between Bannister Road and Livingstone Drive.
