Capel Sound: Broadway Road and Drainage Upgrade

  • Project typeRoads, Streetscapes & Footpaths
  • Project value$1.6 Million

Ongoing concerns have been raised about drainage, the condition of the road and well as the continued increase of usage of Broadway as an alternative to Point Nepean Road. The Shire has investigated these concerns and considered these factors. As a result, Broadway, between Truemans Road and Elizabeth Avenue has been identified as a high priority site for upgrade under the Roads to Recovery Program.

The following works are proposed to assist with the upgrade of Broadway Road.

  • Rehabilitation and upgrade of the existing roadway, including the construction of kerb and channel
  • Installation of appropriate drainage to address the ongoing drainage issues
  • Upgrade of bus stop facilities including indented bus pull over areas and formalised waiting areas
  • Construction of a footpath along Broadway to connect into existing footpaths on Truemans Road and Elizabeth Avenue
  • A pedestrian refuge crossing immediately east of Eliza Street
  • Implementation of traffic calming along the length of Broadway to replace existing speed humps

Construction works have commenced with works on the soakage pits currently underway, the project is expected to be completed by September 2024.
