As part of our road reconstruction program, the City will be resurfacing along Ashmore Road, to improve the overall condition of the road surface and reduce the need for regular maintenance.

Construction details

  • Resurfacing approximately 1640 metres on the eastbound section of Ashmore Road Benowa, between Ross Street and Benowa Road
  • resurfacing approximately 340 metres on the westbound section of Ashmore Road (through the intersection of Ashmore Road with Heeb Street),
  • resurfacing of 70 metres of Heeb Street (full road width)
  • replacing 100 metres of kerb and channel to meet Council's Land Development Guidelines
  • replacing 100 metres of footpath and reconstructing three driveways to tie into new kerb and channel
  • upgrading stormwater grates to meet Council's Land Development Guidelines
  • reinstating line marking and reflectors.

Civil works are to be completed between 6am and 6pm, Monday to Friday (and Saturdays as required) over an approximate 3-week period. Resurfacing works will be completed at night between 6pm and 6am Sunday to Friday over a 3-week period, weather permitting.

We will be working to minimise disruptions. However, residents may notice additional lighting, construction noise and dust.

  • To facilitate the works lane reductions may be required for civil works during the day. In addition to lane closures, full road closures and detours may be required to facilitate the asphalt works at night.
  • Through traffic will experience delays but signage will provide advance information on the works schedule, and traffic management will be in place to coordinate the required lane closures, detours and access to side streets.
  • On-street parking will be restricted along this section of Ashmore Road during reconstruction.

Benefits for the community

  • Improved road surface and amenity
