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. The path has been designed to be on the southern side of the road between Elizabeth Avenue and Vale Street with the path to then cross the road via a pedestrian crossing to be on the north side from Vale Street to Truemans Road
  • A pedestrian refuge crossing immediately east of Eliza Street
  • Construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Truemans Road and Broadway
  • Implementation of traffic calming along the length of Broadway to replace existing speed humps

Preliminary design work has been completed for the project with a number of external consultants currently progressing design assessments. It is anticipated that detailed design will be undertaken over the course of the 2022/23 financial year.
