Major Road Works – Bertram Road from Wellard Road to Challenger Avenue

Purpose: Temporary full-time road closure of the northbound lane on Bertram Road between Wellard Road and Challenger Avenue for the purpose of Water Corporation sewer upgrade works.   

Location: Bertram Road, between Wellard Road and Challenger Avenue in Parmelia (northbound lane only closed)

Date and Time: Phase 1 - Wednesday, 29 November remaining in place until Friday, 22 December 2023

Phase 2 - Monday 15 January remaining in place until Friday 16 February 2024

Phase 3 - Monday 4 March remainign in place until Friday 29 March 

Please note, these works are for the installation of Water Corporation sewer and are not on behalf of the City of Kwinana

Civcon WA has been engaged by the developer of the Cassia Rise Stage 3 subdivision to complete the installation and upgrade of sewer reticulation services along Bertram Road as a part of this subdivision stage, to service future demand in this subdivision. The proposed sewer reticulation service will be extended from the existing sewer and access chamber near the intersection of Challenger Avenue and Bertram Road to the sewer in Cassia Rise. Due to site constraints such as high ground water levels necessitating dewatering equipment, limited safe working space for plant and equipment, it has been determined to need to construct this sewer by open trenching and necessitates the temporary closure of the northbound lane of Bertram Road between Wellard Road and Challenger Avenue.

The first stage of works is proposed to be completed before the end of this year and the second stage is proposed to commence early in 2024. Therefore, the temporary closures will occur and be implemented over 2 stages.

Stage 1 works and the temporary closure of Bertram Road (northbound lane only) are proposed to commence from Wednesday, 29 November 2023 and continue until Friday, 22 December 2023 (full-time closure as detailed in the attached file). Regarding communications of the upcoming road closure, variable message signs have been in place on Bertram Road to notify road users of the upcoming road closure.
