Footpath works Gardner Street, Como

Public Notice 21 September 2018

In accordance with the 2018/2019 Capital Works Program, the City will be carrying out the following footpath works:

  • Gardner Street between Labouchere Road and Coode Street, Como - works to commence on 1 October 2018, weather permitting

The works will involve the removal of the original concrete slab path and construction of a new 1.5m ‘in-situ’ concrete footpath. 

Should the City encounter plants or shrubs/hedges which have been planted on the verge, we request that these be pruned back. Alternatively the City will make arrangements to undertake any required pruning or vegetation removal.

The City may be required to make changes to existing privately owned reticulation systems located in the verge. Where this applies, we will undertake the required changes at no cost to the owner of the property. We request that residents fully test their systems within three weeks of the completion of the project and advise us of any problems. Unfortunately, after this period the City may not take responsibility for repairs.

Should the existing footpath section of your crossing be of slab construction, it will require an upgrade to concrete standard. If so, you will be notified by the contractor of the scheduled construction day. On that day you will be required to remove any vehicles by 7am, and entry/exit from your property will be limited for one day to allow for curing time. Alternative parking of vehicles should be arranged for that day.
