Beckmans Road traffic delays as Council tests pavement

Motorists may face night time traffic delays of up to 10 minutes on Beckmans Road from September 9 to 13.

Council’s Infrastructure Services Director Carl Billingham said Council contractors were testing the pavement to help inform design options.

“We’re doing the work at night when traffic is light, so as to minimise disruption, but there may still be delays of up to 10 minutes between 6pm and 6am,” he said.

Stop/go traffic control will be in place.

Contractors will use a vehicle-mounted auger drilling rig to examine the pavement foundations at intervals along the road.

Mr Billingham said the work would be carried out over four nights, with noise kept to a minimum.

“Council wishes to advise the community that as a matter of workplace health and safety, reversing beepers may not be switched off during the works,” he said.

“To avoid delays, motorists may like to consider taking an alternative route. We appreciate the community’s patience while work is under way.”
