ON THE ROADS: Council's roadwork for the week

WORK is continuing work at the Margaret and Hill Street intersection.

Orange City Council is upgrading to provide pedestrian facilities.

This week the crews will be building a pedestrian blister island on the eastern side to the road  to match new ‘blister island’ already completed on the western side.

The next stage towards removing the dip across Hill Street will also be happening this week. 

A temporary seal has been added to the roadway at the intersection.

This is aimed at preserving the underground pavement until a more permanent asphalt seal is laid by council’s contractors.

Work is also continuing this week in Burrendong Way south from the council boundary.

The first section of the road was sealed last week.

Drivers in Forest Road are urged to take extra care.

Council’s contractors will be working again this week alongside the roadway.

They are preparing underground cabling, a step towards construction of traffic lights for the intersection at the entrance to the Bloomfield Hospital Gates and the new aged care facility.

Contractors will continue to pour concrete for a shared bicycle-pedestrian path from Spring Street to McLachlan Street.

That work is expected to take a further two weeks.

Weather permitting, there will be brief delays for drivers in Bulgas Road.

More of the road will be sealed this week past the Suma Park Dam entryway.

This work is aimed at reducing dust impact for residents once work starts on the Suma Park upgrade in the coming months.
