Stage Two Flores Road resurfacing begins

Stage Two of the Flores Road resurfacing project which will add the final layer of asphalt to the road will begin next week.

Works include lifting storm drainage pits, replacing existing kerbing and laying an additional 50mm of asphalt.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said the application of the second layer of asphalt will provide an even driving surface for motorists.

“Now that the first layer of asphalt has had time to stabilise cracks that have appeared in the surface over the past two years can be repaired before applying the final layer of asphalt that will smooth out any dips that have developed during the settling of the road,” he said.

Resurfacing works are scheduled to begin on Monday 16 May 2016 and estimated to be completed by the end of June.  To minimise disruption during this time southbound traffic will be diverted over Bradford Street while Northbound traffic will still be able to use Flores Road.

The $375,000 project is funded through the Mid West Regional Road Group.
