Upgrade to Langton and Hall Roads

Summary

Council has allocated funding in the 2016/17 financial year to upgrade Langton and Hall Roads to the standard of industrial roads.

Works proposed

The project will upgrade the full length of Langton Road and Hall Road between the highway and the north coast rail line.

The work will include:

  • road pavement widening, areas of pavement reconstruction, new sections of kerb and channel and asphalt surfacing;
  • improvements to the intersections of Eldorado Road/Hall Road and Langton Road/Hall Road;
  • stormwater drainage upgrades; and
  • improvements to property accesses.

Traffic management

During construction property accesses may be affected for short durations. The construction contractor will contact business operators to discuss timing for access or parking if work is likely to impact entrances.

Traffic management measures will be in place to ensure the safety of pedestrians and motorists. Council appreciates your patience during the works.

Timing

Works are expected to be completed by end of August, depending on weather and other factors.
