Nightworks - Stage 2 - Argyle St / Barkers Lodge Rd Intersection, Picton
Mar. 7 — 12, 2021 6:00pm — 5:00am
Argyle S t /Barkers Lodge Rd Intersection, Picton
Council will be undertaking full width road reconstruction on the intersection of Argyle St and Barkers Lodge Rd.
The work is programmed to commence from 6pm on Sunday 7 March 2021 (weather permitting).
We are allowing 5 shifts for this work (Sun-Fri 6pm-5am).
The existing road pavement will be completely removed and replaced with asphaltic concrete. While the work is underway, stop slow traffic control will be in place. Residents will still be able to access properties within the worksite – this includes deliveries, visitors etc.
As the work will involve some disruption, it is important that you are aware of the roadwork and make appropriate plans (e.g. leave a few minutes earlier). Council will distribute flyers to nearby residents and will install large electronic message boards a week before works are due to commence. In addition, our contractor will send out a second notification to residents.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why are we doing this at night?
The decision to undertake this project at night was made due to the high traffic volumes and also the concurrent works on Prince St bridge by TfNSW.
Why don’t we do all projects at night?
Each project is looked at individually. Safety, anticipated disruption, cost and economic impact are all considered.
Why are we reconstructing this road?
This work is part funded through a grant to improve this intersection. Council is also contributing additional funds to improve the road pavement.
How disruptive will the work be?
Limiting disruption is something Council considers when choosing how and when roadwork will be done. People travelling through the worksite will experience delays, so should allow extra time for their journey. However, as the work will be done at night it will not cause delays during the peak traffic times.
If motorists have any questions or special needs they can speak to the friendly traffic controllers on site and efforts will be made to work with them to address any issues that arise. The work will generate some noise for nearby residents, but we will attempt to do the noisiest parts of the work earlier in the evening.
