The resurfacing of Ocean Way comprises the selected patching of existing asphalt to a depth of 115mm. This including the removal of existing premixed asphalt surfacing and replacing it with a new 50 mm thick asphalt-surfacing layer. 

Traffic will be accommodated by single lane closures along the following routes:

  • Cardita Circle
  • Balers Way
  • Diluta Drive
  • Bay Beach Avenue

Access will be granted to residents who live along this road and existing road markings will be reinstated to their original position once the project is complete.

‘We would like to thank road users for their patience as we undertake this routine maintenance that will ensure the longevity of the existing road. There are measures in place to help direct residents during the construction period and we urge all to please pay attention to road signs and consider alternative routes,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas.
