Road construction and rehabilitation
WORK is underway to rehabilitate existing road pavements in Byng Street, between Sale and Clinton Street, and in Dalton Street between McLachlan and William Street.
Once the rain clears, an asphalt surface will be added to these streets by the council’s contractors this week.
Orange City Council’s crews have continued rehabilitation work on Cadia Road between Berrilee Road and Forest Road.
This includes an upgrading and widening of the Berrilee Road intersection.
The upgrading of 1.8km of Burrendong Way south from the council boundary is continuing.
Work designed to strengthen the existing pavement will begin this week.
Council contractors have also completed preliminary work for the extra set of traffic lights at the intersection of Telopea Way and Farrrell Road.
Contractors have drilled a cavity under the roadway to install the electrical conduits that are used to operate the lights.
Contractors have also completed the footings for the installation of the lights.
The road pavement upgrading will be carried out in early May, with the new signal poles and lanterns to be installed and commissioned in mid-May, weather permitting.
Drivers in this area are reminded to be aware of traffic control arrangements and obey all work zone speed restrictions.
COUNCIL road crews undertook maintenance activities across the area to address problems brought about by recent rains, including pothole patching and road shoulder clearing in Ploughmans Lane.
Concrete and drainage
ROAD and drainage maintenance crews were undertaking further work on piped culvert replacements and extensions on Cadia Road and modifying drainage structures in Ploughmans Lane.
