Brooker Highway - Clearys Gates to Risdon Road - Road Reinstatement

Brooker Highway - Clearys Gates to Risdon Road - Road Reinstatement

The Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources (DIER) has awarded a contract to reseal sections of the north and south bound lanes of the Brooker Highway between Clearys Gates and Risdon Road, including the Domain Highway ramps.

The works will involve removing the top portion of the existing road surface and replacing it with new material to improve the safety of the travelling public and minimise road maintenance costs.

Works will be undertaken at night from 6:00pm to 6:00am, with one lane of traffic in each direction remaining open at all times. Speed restrictions, altered traffic conditions and variable message boards will be used to advise road users and residents of expected delays and lane closures. The works will be staged to ensure noisy activities are undertaken during earlier hours, to minimise noise disruption.

Current Status

The contract has been awarded to Downer EDI Works Pty Ltd.  

Work is anticipated to commence in early March 2013 and be completed by the end of April 2013, weather permitting.
