Improvements to Gympie Terrace on the way

Improvements to Gympie Terrace are set to start

Work to improve stormwater infrastructure and pedestrian safety on Gympie Terrace will begin next week.

The $2 million project involves the installation of new stormwater pipes and upgrading the road between Albert and Cloudsley streets to boost safety for cyclists and pedestrians.

Project Coordinator Scott Anderson said some night works are planned to fast-track the project and minimise disruptions to local residents and businesses.

“We are mindful of minimising traffic disruptions during the work and wherever possible, contractors will keep traffic flowing in both directions, with traffic controllers’ onsite to assist the public with changes to road and pedestrian access,” he said.

“Some of the critical road crossing work at the northern end of The Cockleshell and Robert Street requires short-term road closures, which will happen at night.”
 
“We expect the whole project to take about five months, with asphalting between Albert and Cloudsley streets to take place after the stormwater pipes are installed.

Mr Anderson said the aging stormwater infrastructure is in need of replacement.

“This work will see stormwater culverts replaced at five locations on Gympie Terrace between Robert Street and Ely Park / Pelican Beach Park,

“Dedicated on-road cycle lanes and pedestrian crossing improvements form part of the upgraded road works,

“We will provide the community with regular updates about the project’s progress and Hall Contractors are committed to keeping residents and businesses well informed if works are expected to have a direct impact on access.”

Mr Anderson said this is vital work to improve critical infrastructure in the area.

“We appreciate residents’ and motorists’ patience during the construction process.”
