Road Works

Project Status : In Progress
Estimated Completion Date : Mid 2020
Location : Various

Road rehabilitation works on several of the City’s roads began yesterday at Stirling Crescent and today on Welshpool Road East’s slow lane going up the hill between Lewis and Gladys streets.

The technology being utilized to undertake the rehabilitation provides shorter works programs, compared to conventional road rehabilitation projects, however significant space is needed to undertake the work. ,  As a result the current road network as been temporarily modified with traffic traveling up the hill at Welshpool Road East is being directed to the right side of the road,  in one of the two downhill traffic lanes with downhill traffic restricted to one lane.

This equipment will be operating throughout the day in order to complete the works quickly.

Motorists are reminded to be vigilant for all road users during this time, including trucks and cyclists. 

“We ask motorists to use extreme caution on Welshpool Road East for the next few days,” City of Kalamunda CEO Rhonda Hardy said.

“The City is committed to regular road maintenance and we thank residents for their patience over the next few days.”

“Current works on Welshpool Road between Lewis and Gladys are expected to be complete by the 17 March.”

Some further works will be undertaken at the Canning Road and Welshpool Road intersection towards the end of the month,  these works will be carried out during the night.

The crossing point at Lewis Road is being managed by STOP/SLOW traffic control to let traffic in and out, however delays are being caused by traffic merging from two lanes to one lane. Motorists could consider using Hartfield Rd and Hale Rd if they wish to travel west during this period.

“We encourage motorists to seek alternate access at Crystal Brook Road or via Kalamunda Road where possible. ” Ms Hardy said.
