Frequently asked questions

It is anticipated that this project will take 2-3 months to construct after service relocation.

We will seek to mitigate disruptions as much as possible. The majority of the works will occur during work hours. We will carry out works during the school holidays where possible.

Changes in traffic conditions will be communicated through signage. Local residents will be informed via letter drop of specific impacts during construction and we will provide ongoing project updates online on this webpage.

We have engaged the help of an arborist to assist with the design and as a result, the vast majority of the trees will be retained. Unfortunately, four trees will require removal for the construction of a new footpath. New tree plantings will be delivered to help offset the tree loss.

Yes, Council has been undertaking design for these other roads as well, however, funding from the Australian Government has only been granted for the construction of this section of Creamery Road. The budget for the construction of Burtons Road, Mechanics Road, and the rest of Creamery Rd is in Council’s Capital Works plan for the 2027/2028 financial year.

Yes, as per the feedback received in 2018, the road will consist of a sealed surface with open grassed swale drains with no kerb and channel. However, the section of Creamery Rd involved in this stage will be mostly kerbed due to safety and site constraints.

There will be lighting at the proposed roundabout to Australian Standards. No lighting is proposed along the rest of the roadway.
