Braemar stormwater works

18 November, 2019

Wingecarribee Shire Council wishes to advise that preliminary works for the construction of stormwater improvement works on Braemar Avenue will continue throughout the month of November.

The project involves upgrading the stormwater infrastructure on Braemar Avenue west of the old Hume Highway.

On completion the project is expected to significantly improve stormwater capacity and reduce the frequency of water flowing over the road during severe storms.  The finished project will also see the road widened which will assist two-way traffic flow and improve pedestrian access.

The project will be undertaken in three stages with the first stage to include the relocation of existing services and erosion control.  The second and third stages involve the excavation and upgrade of the existing stormwater pipe infrastructure.

A temporary work compound will be erected on the corner of Braemar Avenue and the Old Hume Highway with construction expected to extend into early 2020.

During construction activities Braemar Avenue will remain open to traffic but will be reduced to alternating one-way flow under traffic control.

Road users are cautioned to follow the changed traffic conditions, exercise care when traveling through the work zones and be aware of loose stones and heavy machinery within the work areas.

Council thanks motorists and pedestrians in advance for their cooperation and apologises for any temporary delays or inconvenience.

Works are expected to be completed in March 2020.  All timeframes are subject to weather conditions.
