ROAD AND DRAINAGE WORKS
Centre Way Lane (runs off The Avenue)
New pavers are being laid in Centre Way Lane. While the work is in progress, pedestrians are asked to follow all directional signage. Work is expected to be completed by the end of March 2015. There is the possibility that working hours will be extended into the evening and some week-end work may be required.
Hill Street, West Launceston
A new stormwater pipe is being installed under the kerb on the western side of the road. The box drains and kerb and channel are being upgraded. As the box drains are listed as having high heritage significance, the bluestone will be re-used when constructing the new kerb and channel. The work will take some weeks to complete.
Midlands Highway road safety upgrades
A roundabout is being built along the Kings Meadows Connector at the bottom of the exit ramp from the Midlands Highway.
Other works along the Highway include:
South of Tunbridge; north of Spring Hill; south of Spring Hill; and south of Kempton - The Department of State Growth (previously known as DIER) began working in these areas 8 December 2014.
