Southport – Wardoo Street – road reconstruction

Commencing: August 2020
Completion: October 2020
Cost: $1.5 million

Project information

We will be reconstructing Wardoo Street in Southport to improve the overall condition of the road surface and reduce the need for regular maintenance. As part of this project there will also be sections of kerb and channel, vehicle crossover and footpath reconstruction.

Construction details

The extent of works is listed below:

  • road resurfacing will include pavement replacement, pavement repair and asphalt overlay for an approximate distance of 600 metres
  • sections of kerb and channel replacement
  • sections of footpath replacement
  • reconstruction of ten driveway crossovers
  • upgrade of stormwater grates to meet current standards. (Recently constructed gully pits to remain unchanged)
  • reinstatement of traffic control devices, line marking and reflectors, bicycle and parking lanes and any markings for bus stop set down / pick-up.

Construction will commence August 2020 and will be completed within eight weeks, weather permitting. To minimise disruption to the traffic network, civil works will be completed during the day Monday to Saturday between 6.30am and 6.30pm. Resurfacing works will be completed during the night from Sunday to Friday, between 7pm and 5am.

During construction, there will be temporary changes to traffic conditions along Wardoo Street. There will be no full road closures and access will be maintained. At times, there may be detours and lane reductions. On-street parking will also be unavailable during certain stages of the project. Traffic management will be in place.

We will continue to work with the community to minimise disruptions. However, local residents may be impacted by limited access, traffic disruption, additional lighting, construction noise and dust. Please slow down around roadworks and take extra care in the area.

Benefits for the community

  • improved road surface and amenity
  • a decrease in maintenance works.
