  • This project will reclaim 2,500m2 of riverside land for use as public open space
  • This project will create an additional 8 parking bays to service Dome, Bicentennial Falls and surrounding public open space
  • A new roundabout will be installed to improve safety and facilitate improved traffic flows at the intersection of Pier Street
  • Riverside Road will be rezoned to 40kph to create a safer environment for pedestrians, cyclists and road users
  • This project will provide appropriately selected street trees and enhance the riverside landscaping
  • The existing road pavement will be reused via foam bitumen stabilisation, which has a minimum design life of 40-years
  • Foam bitumen stabilisation reuses the existing pavement material, eliminating the need for virgin quarry products and reducing the transportation and haulage of carting new materials
  • Foam bitumen stabilisation has a rapid construction period, and will take approximately 7 days to stabilise the full road.  Additional time will be required for other ancillary works.
  • Riverside Road will remain accessible throughout the construction period
  • Asphalt surfacing will be undertaken using polymer modified asphalt where the polymer will be specified as TonerPlas
  • TonerPlas uses recycled toners, soft plastics and recycled glass to create a fatigue resistant road surface.  Paving Riverside Road with TonerPlas will use approximately:
    • 800,000 reclaimed plastic bag equivalents
    • 252,000 glass bottle (stubby) equivalents
    • Unused toner from 1900 printer cartridges
    • 20% reclaimed asphalt pavement
