Planning

At the meeting of 7 June 2010, the Council awarded the construction contract to Watpac Civil Infrastructure for construction to commence in August 2010.  This construction will deliver a widened and safer road between Yaktanga Way and Springs Road with construction occurring from August through to December 2010.

Detailed designs for the section of road between Yaktanga Way and Springs Road were commissioned in September 2009. The scope of works between Yaktanga Way and Springs was amended during the tender period to include construction of a section of treated wastewater pipeline.

Soon after the approval of the Concept Designs by Council, application for grant funding from the Special Local Roads Program were sought for Stage 1 of the project implementation.  Advice of the success in securing this important grant funded was received in September 2009.  The following information report to Council in October 2009 summarises this funding success.
