Bitumen Laid on Middle Rd, Jackhammer frustrates Residents
Thu, 01 Nov 2007 08:16 pm By
Over the past 2 days, workers laid bitumen over the newly
flattened ground. The Concrete slab walls along the northern side of Middle Road (both sides of the Webster
St bridge) have also been installed, covering up the unsightly
concrete reinforcement piles. At this stage, it looks to be only
another week or so before the new lanes along Middle Rd are opened.
This (Thursday) evening construction workers started drilling/cutting
the old part of Middle Rd at the Warrigal Rd intersection. In the past,
this activity occurred closer to Webster St, upsetting nearby residents
who could feel the strong vibrations in their house. Today's vibrations
could be felt up to 50 meters away from the site. It appears the drilling
was necessary to remove old rubble so that an exit ramp can be put in
place for residents along Middle Rd and Webster St.
