Ward Civil Customer Service
The new street design will improve connections across the area and create safe, green spaces that encourage people to walk and cycle. The 230m underground drain will help ease street flooding and connect drain infrastructure across the Ashmore precinct.
The $13 million project will support growth in the precinct and add to the area’s existing community facilities, parks and public spaces.
Works will include:
We will need to remove 36 trees for the works, but we will plant 47 new trees, so the street will have 11 more trees by the end of the project. The landscaping will include understory planting.
The increase in trees and the construction of the cycleway will require a reduction in on-street parking. There are currently 48 parking spaces on MacDonald and Goddard streets. When the project is complete there will be 24 spaces.
Our contractor Ward Civil & Environmental Engineering will carry out the work.
Our usual construction hours will be 7am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday, and 7am to 4pm on Saturdays. Extended work hours may apply in line with Covid-19 work approval.
MacDonald and Goddard streets and the streets nearby will remain open to traffic during the works. We will need to change traffic lanes throughout the works and at times there will be single lane 1-way traffic.
There will be limited footpath access along the northern side of MacDonald Street for part of the works.
There will be no parking on MacDonald and Goddard streets during the works.
Parking in Hadfields Street will be temporarily reduced to accommodate the construction site office.
Our contractor will make every effort to minimise other impacts. However, there will be machinery noise and dust.
