UPCOMING NIGHT AND WEEKEND WORKS ON SOUTH ROAD BETWEEN TORRENS ROAD AND HOTCHKISS CRESCENT, AND ON TORRENS ROAD BETWEEN SOUTH ROAD AND BLIGHT STREET, RIDLEYTON- 8 – 11 OCTOBER & 12 – 15 OCTOBER 2018

As part of the Torrens Road to River Torrens Project, and as previously advised, the T2T Alliance will be undertaking finishing works prior to the final layer of asphalt being laid across the project area.

To minimise disturbance to peak hour traffic, and weather permitting, these works will be undertaken intermittently each night between 7pm and 6am from Monday 8 October to Thursday 11 October (finishing 6am Friday 12 October) and over the period from 7pm Friday 12 October to 6am Monday 15 October.

Key activities                                                                                                                                   

  • Saw cutting and jack hammering of service pits on South Road between Port Road and Torrens Road from 7pm Monday 8 October to 6am Tuesday 9 October – an increase in noise levels can be expected.
  • Profiling of pavement from 7pm Monday 8 October to 6am Tuesday 9 October – an increase in noise levels can be expected.
  • Asphalting on South Road between Torrens Road and Hotchkiss Crescent from 6.30am to 7pm on Saturday 13 October and Sunday 14 October and on Torrens Road between South Road and Blight Street from 6.30am to 7pm Sunday 14 October – some increase in vibration levels and odour can be expected.

Noise and Vibration

Construction noise and vibration on a major infrastructure project cannot be eliminated altogether. The project is implementing a range of measures for these activities to manage the impact which include:

  • providing advance notice of works to residents
  • wherever possible, scheduling the noisiest activities during the day or early evening
  • maintaining machinery to a high standard to reduce noise levels
  • using a smaller roller where possible, and where this is not possible the heavy roller will be set at the highest frequency possible.

Vibration felt from construction works do not necessarily cause structural damage or damage to your property.

Odour

The laying of pavement and asphalting will cause an odour. Odour sensitivity and responses vary from person to person. Your ability to detect an odour will depend on the location of the asphalting works and the prevailing wind direction. While the odour may be uncomfortable or an annoyance there is no evidence that the odour from road pavement works will cause health effects to the community.
