Byron Sidewalk Construction and Truck traffic
Since the end of May the City has been working on Byron AVE to prepare it for the beginning of the rail construction project.
This work has focused on the location of utility services, the movement of some, and the building of the curb and sidewalk on the south side of Byron AVE. The demands of the work, with its heavy trucks and equipment has been disruptive to many. Clearly the closer you live to the work and truck movements, the more stress and challenges those residents feel.
Below is the response from the Rail Construction Program office to concerns about truck traffic raised by a community member on Richardson AVE. The Woodpark Board has also been in conversations with residents of Woodroffe AVE as well, who are also concerned by the volume of truck traffic in the area.
We are at the beginning of an extensive building period around the community. The construction will last a number of years. We will all need to give space to pedestrians walking in the community and be mindful of our speed and changing traffic patterns on our streets.
Your Community Association is pushing for information from the Rail Office to ensure mitigation measures are in place and to inform the community of these pending activities.
All the best,
President of Woodpark CA
Resident of Byron AVE
