Muldoon Street Taree
As part of our focus on improving infrastructure across the region, the busy section of Muldoon Street, between the railway crossing and Kanangra Drive, will be rehabilitated over three distinct stages. The final result will provide a smoother, safer and more durable travel route to cater for high volumes of traffic into the future. The first stage, currently in progress, commenced in May 2020.
Stage 1 - Railway to Whitbread Street:
A 540m section of Muldoon Street, between the railway crossing and Whitbread Street, has been targeted for improvements. The scope of works includes:
- reconstructing the existing road
- addressing roadside drainage
- replacing kerb and guttering in some places
- applying an asphalt overlay
Preliminary works were undertaken during May 2020 to lower water crossings in preparation for the pavement works, allowing the new road to be constructed at an appropriate depth. With this part of the project now complete, the road reconstruction works are scheduled to commence on Monday 15 June, continuing over approximately 6 weeks, weather-permitting.
During this phase, restrictions to parking, reduced speed limits, and lane closures under traffic control will be required. At times a full road closure may be required, when clearly marked detours will be in place.
- Crews will be on-site to undertake kerb and drainage works during the day
- Asphalt works to replace the road pavement will take place at night
- Some weekend work is also scheduled to ensure the timely completion of the project
Motorists can expect short delays, and are reminded to be alert to changed traffic conditions during the day and at night. We will continue to work with local businesses in the vicinity of the works to minimise disruption and ensure access to properties is maintained.
As with all roadworks, our schedule may change depending on unfavourable weather and / or unforseen underground issues. Please check back here to stay updated as the works progress.
Stage 2 - Whitbread Street to Mudford Street (FY 20/21)
Stage 3 - Mudford Street to Kanangra Drive (TBC)
