March 2022 Update
The Springvale Boulevard Project will see a full upgrade of the road and footpaths located on Springvale Road between Balmoral Avenue and Windsor Avenue.
The construction works will be conducted by MACA Infrastructure Pty Ltd (MACA).
Construction commenced in mid-August 2021 and is expected to finish by late-August 2022.
What we’ve done so far
Since our last update we have:
- Completed stage 2 drainage works
- Completed structural soil, which will help drainage for the new garden beds
- Started roadside kerb installation
- Started public lighting works
Moving into Stage 3 of the project, we are progressing with earthworks. These works create dust and increase noise. We are monitoring our dust levels and have started implementing water trucks that reduce dust levels to help mitigate the impact to the community.
We apologise for any inconvenience and will continue to minimise these impacts as much as possible.
Changed traffic conditions
During the drainage works there will be changes to traffic conditions, however there will always be two lanes in each direction. Please be aware and look out for signage and traffic controllers.
Parking bays along Springvale Road will be temporarily unavailable to allow the project team to conduct the works safely. These parking bays will be reinstated when safe to do so. Parking is available on the ‘Number 8’ Balmoral Avenue multi-deck carpark and Windsor Avenue car park.
As we progress with the Springvale Boulevard Project, we may uncover asbestos-containing materials that need to be removed. We’ll keep you informed and follow strict guidelines for asbestos removal if we do.
It is common to find asbestos in infrastructure projects. The asbestos found is usually non-friable, commonly found in building materials such as concrete and produced in a bonded state. This means it cannot be crushed by hand and poses a low risk.
When asbestos is found, to carry out these works safely, we will engage a licensed asbestos removalist to remove the asbestos from site. Due to asbestos management regulations, workers handling the material must wear protective clothing regardless of the level of risk involved.
Most of our works in March will be day works and undertaken between 7am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday. We will notify you ahead of any night works that need to occur.
Keeping you informed
We will continue to distribute regular construction updates to impacted traders, business owners and residents in the area to keep you up to date as construction progresses.
