Kensington and Kingsford zone updates

29 April 2019

In zone 28, all OCS, smartpole and traffic control signal foundations have been completed, with OCS poles being progressively installed.

Pavement restoration works on the Todman Avenue turning lane are also complete.

Stormwater drainage construction continued in April, while kerb installation progressed between Carlton Street and Goodwood Street. Portions of footpath between Goodwood and Ascot Streets were also restored.

Structural steel has now been installed on the ES Marks and Kensington light rail stops. Kerb restoration works progressed with concrete pours at the northern and southern ends of the stops in preparation for paving.

A shutdown at the Todman Avenue and Anzac Parade intersection made way for pavement restoration of the southbound right turn lanes on Anzac Parade and the reconstruction of the eastern footpath from Todman Avenue to Darling Street.

Zone 29 saw OCS foundations and pile caps progress with OCS poles progressively installed. Offset stormwater pits have been installed to make way for completion of the eastern OCS piles and kerb. Kerb and footpath installation continued between Doncaster and High Streets.

Teams in zone 30 have installed the structural steel frame at UNSW Anzac Parade Light Rail Stop and are working to reconstruct the eastern side of the footpath from Uni Mall to Barker Street. Work continued on the installation of conduit service route pits north of the stop. Kerb concrete pours took place at the northern and southern ends of the stop in preparation for paving works. The base layer of the eastern footpath from the Tyree Building to Barker Street was poured to progress restoration works.

Underground electrical works are complete at the southern end of zone 30. Work on the Kingsford Stop has progressed with structural steel and kerbs now installed. Decommissioning of the overhead network made way for the remaining stormwater drains to be installed.  

Nine Ways road restoration in zone 31 is nearing completion with all road base now finished. Footpath reconstruction near Sturt Street is moving ahead. The last 56 hour shutdown to finalise the layout of the Nine Ways intersection is scheduled for mid-May. Footpath restoration works are underway and the structural steel has also been installed at the Kingsford terminus.

Upcoming works in the precinct include smartpole installation, construction of light rail stops, footpath, kerb and road restoration works, and installing traffic signal conduits.
