Avoid Castle Hill train station overnight

AVOID Old Northern Road near Castle Towers from midnight to 6am over the coming week.

Same goes for the Norwest station site (Norwest Boulevard/Brookhollow Avenue, Bella Vista) on Monday.

Starting tonight (March 19), the North West Rail Link project team will be delivering and removing oversized machinery from the future Castle Hill train station site.

This will be happening intermittently until March 26.

A project spokesman said due to Roads and Maritime Services restrictions on the movement of oversized vehicles, deliveries will occur at night between midnight and 6am in order to minimise impact on the road network.

Traffic control and temporary lane closures will be in place.

All trucks will travel via Terminus Street and enter/exit the site through the gate located on Old Northern Road.

Machinery will then be unloaded/loaded on site prior to the truck departing.

‘‘You may hear noise from heavy vehicle movements,’’ the project team’s spokesman said.

‘‘We will endeavour to keep the noise generated by reverse beepers to a minimum.’’

Machinery being removed includes:

■ Two 40 tonne piling rigs.

Machinery being delivered:

■ Roadheader.

Oversized equipment will also be removed from the Norwest Station site between midnight and 6am on Monday (March 24).

Trucks will enter the site through the gate located on Brookhollow Avenue under traffic control.

The machinery will then be loaded on site before the trucks leave.

Machinery being removed includes: 

■  Piling rig 

What to expect at both station sites:

■ Construction vehicle movements including reversing beepers;

■ Temporary lighting; and

■ Flashing vehicle lights.
