Public Notice 5 April 2023
Road Works

Update: The works at Welwyn Ave between Hope Avenue and Unwin Crescent to commence Friday, 21 April.

In accordance with the 2022/23 Capital Works Program, the City is undertaking road rehabilitation works at Welwyn Av between Hope Av and Unwin Cres.

The City’s contractor has presented an opportunity to commence work earlier than planned, Friday 21 April 2023. The City has accepted the early start as it would reduce the risk of the works being delayed by wet weather. Construction works is scheduled to take approximately 5-6 weeks to complete.

Road works

The road works will primarily involve rehabilitating the existing road surface. The City will also be installing raised intersection plateaus at the intersection of Welwyn Avenue and Letchworth Centre Avenue, and at the intersection of Welwyn Avenue and Howard Parade to improve safety within the area. Additional civil works such as replacing and upgrading existing speed humps, sections of kerb, footpath, pram ramps and drainage infrastructure will also take place during the construction period.

Resurfacing works are scheduled to take place on two occasions during the works period. Nearby and/or affected residents will receive a further letter 48 hours prior to the laying of new asphalt. Driving on freshly laid asphalt can negatively affect the quality of the asphalt and increase the risk of bitumen sticking to car tyres. Vehicle movements in and out of some properties will be impacted during these resurfacing works.

Working hours and traffic management

Construction works are scheduled between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

Temporary road closures and detours will be implemented to facilitate the works. For the safety of road users and construction personnel, please follow signage and take care when driving in the area. Should you need to enter or exit your property while works are in progress, please speak to the traffic controllers who will direct you through the work site. During construction, on-street parking within the works area will also be prohibited.


The works will involve the removal and replacement of some lengths of roadside kerbing. If you have reticulation on an affected kerb line it may be temporarily cut, capped and relocated away from the kerb. A notice will be placed in your letterbox advising once your reticulation has been reinstated. Please test your system within two weeks of the notice. If issues present, please notify the City as soon as possible. The City is responsible for all reinstatement works and will not accept responsibility or provide reimbursement for other repairs or reinstatements carried out by third parties.

Elements of the works may unavoidably be disruptive, and the City appreciates your support and cooperation.
