Bollard rectification works in Southern Rooke Street will be undertaken by a contractor this weekend. The work will be undertaken between 7am and 5pm on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 August.
On Saturday 10 August two car parking metered spaces on the northern side of King Street adjacent to the intersection with Rooke Street and two car parking metered spaces on Rooke Street, just south of the 12 bollards being treated, will be occupied by the contractor.
On Sunday 11 August two car parking metered spaces will be required on the northern side of King Street adjacent to the intersection with Rooke Street and two car parking metered spaces on Rooke St adjacent to the three treatment sites will be occupied by the contractor.
Police bollards and nightline will be erected to create a barrier between pedestrian traffic and the works each day.
The contractor will place plastic on the footpath/pavers before excavation commences to facilitate the final clean up after the works and restoration are complete. The barriers will be removed upon restoration and clean up.
Appropriate signage will be installed notifying pedestrians and motorists about the planned work.
A reminder that The Devonport City Council is seeking public input into its access and inclusion plan aimed at making the city a better place for all to live in.
Comments must be received by Friday 9 August.
Council is keen to find out about your experiences in dealing with Council, particularly what worked and what did not work.
We also want to know about ways to make it easier for residents and visitors living with disability.
The feedback will be used to develop a five-year plan to improve access and inclusion to all Council facilities and services.
Residents can have their say by:
- Attending a face to face group meeting with other community members and Council staff (late July-mid August, contact Council to register your interest) or;
- Completing a survey – available on the Council website at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/accessandinclusion
- Making a comment on the feedback form at https://www.devonport.tas.gov.au/council/get-involved/speak-up-devonport/devonport-city-disability-access-and-inclusion-plan/
- Submitting a short video or audio through the feedback form
Hard copies of the survey are also available from Council offices in the paranaple centre and and a link can be found online to download a copy in an easy read format.
Interested parties can also call Council on 6424 0511 to be sent a copy.
