Stage 1 and 2 feedback closed 3 November 2020.


Council is proposing to undertake significant, essential upgrade works along Miller Street and Blue Street and seeks input on two options under which works can be undertaken.

Miller and Blue Streets are important regional roads which connect North Sydney to the City attracting tens of thousands of vehicles each day. The proposed works are considered necessary because various areas within the pavement have subsided (see images of typical pavement failures in the Document Library). It is important to maintain these roads to ensure the safety of all road users.

The works consist of milling the existing asphalt surface, excavating and reinstating the damaged concrete pavement beneath the road’s surface, and laying a new asphalt seal. Works will be undertaken in four separate stages. The commencement dates and durations are outlined in the table below. A locality map is available in the Document Library.

*Information and preliminary feedback for stage 3 and 4, further consultation will be undertaken at a date closer to the works.

In relation to construction duration, two options are provided for each stage of the works for consideration by residents. Option A entails undertaking the works on straight consecutive nights until completion. Option B allows the spread of duration across several weeks by limiting the works to a maximum of 3 straight consecutive nights in any given week and providing residents with 4 nights of noise reprieve.

Regrettably, both options will cause disruption to normal sleeping patterns. Council is therefore seeking input from affected residents to determine which option will have the least negative impact on their wellbeing. Residents are kindly requested to use the link below to vote on their preferred option and provide any feedback.

The slides from the Information Session held 21 October 2020 are available from the Document Library.
