PAVEMENT REJUVENATION WORKS - GOONDIWINDI
In order to carry out routine maintenance to the road network, Council wishes to advise that asphalt pavement rejuvenation works will be undertaken by Council’s Contractor, Colas Solutions, on James Ryan Avenue & Paul Bradley Drive, between Thoras Parade and Frideswide Street (see area in red in image below) on Tuesday 31 October 2023, subject to weather and progress of preceding works. This work will also disrupt access to Peters Place.
To assist with these works, residents are requested not to park vehicles on the street, to remove from the work area any vehicles required during the works period and to follow any directions or instructions given by Council and Contractor staff, particularly Traffic Controllers, until these works are completed. Disruptions to traffic conditions will involve a temporary closure of James Ryan Avenue & Paul Bradley Drive and traffic disruptions to some surrounding streets, including access to Peters Place, (see areas in yellow below) to all traffic for a number of hours during the actual rejuvenation works and the subsequent drying period, although the duration of these closures will be kept to the minimum required to safely carry out these works.
A traffic controller working for Colas Solutions will physically advise affected residents shortly prior to the actual closure and barricades will be removed once the product has dried and is able to be trafficked.
Council would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience during this period.
