Night works to undertake asphalt heavy patching will take place on Fernleigh Road between Glenfield Road and Pinaroo Drive over four nights.
Council advised this will be followed by a complete reseal on Sunday, March 18, prior to the construction of concrete medians, signage and a pedestrian refuge.
“The asphalt heavy patching will help stabilise the road base so issues such as potholes are less frequent going forward,” council project operations manager Bruce Sheridan said.
“The top layer of the road is only one component of how a road is constructed and it’s important the subgrade beneath it is strong and stable.
Once the night works are complete, council intends to reseal the entire section of Fernleigh Road.
“The follow-up works will help improve safety for pedestrians and there will be a new centre turning lane,” Mr Sheridan said.
The asphalt heavy patching will take place from Monday 12 March and will finish on the morning of Friday 16 March.
Works will begin at 7pm each evening and will finish at 6am.
During the works, Fernleigh Road from Glenfield Road to Pinaroo Drive will be closed to all traffic, with detours in place.
The road will be reopened to normal traffic each morning.
Once the night works are complete, Fernleigh Road will be closed again on Sunday, March 18.
The resealing will take place from 7am to 6pm, with the works conducted in two sections to minimise the impact on motorists and businesses.
The first section will see the road closed at the Glenfield Road intersection until halfway down the block.
Once it is complete, work will begin on the second section with the road closed from Pinaroo Drive until halfway down the block.
