I recently met with the Minister's office and the Southern Expressway Project team to follow-up on the December Community Meeting to discuss works needed along the Expressway and on the Noisewall.
I have spoken to the Department about setting up another community meeting allowing the Department to explain to local residents what is finally happening to fix the Noisewall and the landscaping along the Expressway. As soon as we have a date I will let you know.
In the meantime below are a series of pictures and plans for the Noisewall and various other works that have been going on in the local area along the Expressway at the request of residents at our last meeting.
If you do have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office. Additionally there will be opportunity to have all of your questions addressed directly by the Department in the coming weeks.
Despite the fact that the Department has been delayed in putting this information together these are the plans I have received. The blue dots represents the area that has been completed. The Department has said that a lot of the landscaping was held up due to the dry weather. They have informed me that it is expected to be completed by August 2015. Please note that some of the plans are outdated, illustrating bike paths were there will not be one, and are just supposed to indicate the landscaping plan.
