Temporary maintenance complete

Sheraton road work completion

Key Dates

Friday 6 October 2023

Temporary maintenance at Sheraton Road has been completed, with a sealed gravel footpath also installed.

The works have been undertaken while DRC works on both a temporary and long term solution to divert heavy haulage traffic from Sheraton Road.

Thursday 14 September 2023

Detours were planned for Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 September, we are pleased to announce stop, go measures will now be in place.

Community can still expect some delays during this time.


To align with longer term strategies within the Keswick and Blueridge Estate, works will be undertaken on Sheraton Road between Boundary Road and 141 Sheraton Road. There will be three stages of works which include:

  • Temporary drainage maintenance
  • Temporary sealed gravel footpath installation
  • Temporary patching (pavement repairs)

Consultation undertaken with key stakeholders identified the need for works to be carried out during the school holidays and over weekends, this sentiment has been reflected in our scheduling of works to ensure the best outcomes for community.

Works have been scheduled for the September school holidays in an effort to reduce impacts, however community can expect the following disruptions:

  • There will be staged road closures, which could be subject to change depending on the work schedule and weather permitting
  • Temporary signage and traffic control will be in place to direct traffic or advise on temporary road closures.
