Ferrycarrig Awarded Contract to Upgrade
Wentworth Avenue and Baker Street Intersection
20 January 2022 – Ferrycarrig has been appointed by Transport for NSW to deliver the Wentworth Avenue and Baker Street Intersection Upgrade project in the Bayside LGA.
The upgrade is part of Transport for NSW’s Pinch Point Program that will improve the existing Wentworth Avenue and Baker Street Intersection which is currently subject to traffic congestion with many heavy vehicles frequently using the intersection.
The multidisciplinary project will involve utility modifications including electrical, communications, and gas utility infrastructure modifications, the installation of stormwater infrastructure, and relocation of a water main.
The upgrade also involves roadworks including pavement, kerb, and gutter as well as the installation of a full new set of traffic lights, traffic signs, line marking, signposts, and all associated fixtures for the new roads.
In addition, Ferrycarrig’s inhouse Traffic Management Team will deliver all traffic control requirements associated with the works.
Ferrycarrig’s Project Manager Seamus McDonnell said that considerate solutions designed to minimise impacts to road users and the local community, and thorough planning and staging of the works would be key to successful project delivery.
“The project presents a number of challenges that will need to be carefully planned and managed. Accurate and detailed planning and efficient staging of the works will be the basis for successful and timely project completion.”
“The majority of the works are scheduled to be undertaken at night to minimise inconvenience to road users.”
“This work will ensure better traffic flow for the local community and other motorists moving through this major intersection, resulting in safer and more reliable journeys for motorists and pedestrians travelling through the busy area.”
“We are looking forward to working with Transport for NSW to deliver this challenging intersection upgrade project.” Mr McDonnell said.
