Road works to commence on Marmion St

The City wishes to notify the public that road works will commence on Marmion Street from Justinian Street to Rome Road from Monday, 15 January 2018, with scheduled completion by Monday, 16 April 2018.

The works have been prioritised as essential to address structural failure, deformation and excessive wearing in the wheel paths. These works include replacement of the pavement layer and wearing course with black asphalt in the driving lanes and red asphalt in the bicycle lanes and medians. A number of civil upgrades and pedestrian safety improvements are also included as part of the works

Due to high traffic volumes during the day, profiling and asphalt works will be carried out at night. Detours will be in place. Motorists are asked to reduce their speed along the route and follow the detour signage.

Works will be carried out in three stages:

  • Monday, 15 January to Wednesday, 31 January 2018 - profiling and replacement of the pavement layer between 7.00pm and 6.00am.

  • Tuesday, 3 April to Monday, 16 April 2018 – asphalting of the top layer from 7.00pm to 6.00am.
