We will be reconstructing Napper Road Arundel, eastbound between Allied Drive to the Golf Course Access Road, and Allied Drive between Napper Road and Muirefield Place to improve the overall condition of the road surface and reduce the need for regular maintenance.

Construction details

  • Road resurfacing along Napper Road and Allied Drive, Arundel will include removal and replacement of asphalt for an approximate distance of 660 metres
  • Kerb and channel to be reconstructed to meet Council’s Land Development Guidelines where not serviceable
  • Renewal of the asphalt footpath along Napper Road eastbound, on the northern verge, for approximately 65 metres, with concrete path measuring approximately 2.5 metres wide
  • Partial driveway reconstruction to match in with kerb and channel works for one property in Allied Drive and to the access to Collingwood Court Reserve
  • Stormwater pits to be upgraded to meet Council’s Land Development Guidelines
  • Koala sensitive fencing to replace the existing fence adjacent the footpath to reduce the threat of vehicle strike to koalas
  • Reinstating existing traffic control devices, line marking and reflectors
  • Tree pruning and removal of some small trees at the Napper Road and Allied Drive Intersection
  • Minor vegetation clearing and tree removal along the fence line (where required) to provide a 1.0 metre clearance zone to the new koala protection fence

Construction is currently scheduled to commence in July 2021 and will be completed in 10 weeks, weather permitting. Civil works are to be completed between 6am and 6pm, Monday to Friday (and Saturday as required).

Resurfacing works will be completed over approximately 7 nights, weather dependent between 6pm and 6am Sunday to Friday. Residents will be notified ahead of scheduled night works.

During construction, there will be temporary changes to traffic conditions along Napper Road and Allied Drive. There will be no full road closures and access will be maintained, however part road closures may be required to facilitate works. Traffic management will be in place.

We will continue to work with the community to minimise disruptions.  However, local residents and businesses may be impacted by traffic disruptions, lane closures and traffic detours, limited access, construction noise and dust.

Please slow down around roadworks and take extra care in the area.

Thank you for your patience as we work to improve our city.
