Murphy Street Landslip Repairs-update
Construction is Underway
The upgrade of Warner Street has commenced with the removal last week of invasive weeds from the road verges, to make sure seeds aren’t spread with the movement of soil and equipment.
Work will start on the north side of Warner Street where the pathway and upgraded drainage will be installed. Once complete, work on the southern side will start. The entire project is likely to take three to four months.
Impacts on Traffic and Pedestrians
It is anticipated there will be minimal impact to vehicles travelling along Warner Street, however there will be traffic control at all times workmen are on site. No road or lane closures are anticipated with the exception of 1-2 days later in the project, when a new underground pipe will be installed across the road.
Pedestrian will be directed to the non-construction side of the street during works.
When the concrete pathway is laid, there may be 1-2 days when cars will need to park on the opposite side of the road, or residents may need to leave their cars on the street to allow sufficient time for newly laid concrete to cure. If construction will impact entry or exit from properties, residents will be personally contacted and given sufficient notice to minimise inconvenience.
Order of Works
The first phase, after locating and marking all underground services, is clearing the area between the road and property boundaries. Crews will also remove the existing kerb and guttering and where needed, will bring in material - gravel etc. to reinstate driveways to ensure residents have access and egress to their homes.
The next phase is to do a survey to confirm levels to finalised plans and then start on upgrading the drainage. This will be done in sections along the length of Warner Street.
After the underground drainage is completed, the pathway and new kerb and guttering will be laid and the road verge turfed, street lighting put in and .
Rosewood Trees and other plants
The design has taken into account the structural root zone of the Rosewood trees so to minimise any impacts from construction and no Rosewoods will be removed. To accommodate the pathway, there will be a few trees removed from private properties where they have grown outside the property boundary and some garden beds outside property boundaries will be cleared.
We will be providing residents and businesses in Warner Street with regular updates as to where we are at with the project at any one time, and upcoming milestones. We will also keep our website https://douglas.qld.gov.au/warner-street-upgrade-project/ updated with information and photographs.
