Bateup Road Widening

This page details the Bateup Road Widening project and provides regular updates.

Background

Work is underway in preparation for the widening of Richmond’s Bateup Road, which will make the road safer for all types of users and help cater for increased traffic and growth in Richmond South.

The road and footpaths will be made wider from Three Brothers Corner to Wensley Road to accommodate extra traffic associated with subdivision growth and a new supermarket planned for the area.

As well as widening the road, we will replace a roadside drain with piped stormwater and some stormwater storage chambers.

The work will be split into two areas: 

  • Construction of road from Three Brothers Corner to Collins Road
  • Construction of road from Collins Road to Wensley Road/Paton Road

Progress

Higgins Construction were awarded the contract and started work on Monday 16 April 2018.

As well as the road widening, a new 350mm water main will be installed. This pipeline will be a future connection from the Richmond Water treatment Plant to a new Richmond South Reservoir. The water main will feed into the Arizona and Paton Rise subdivisions and work on the integration of that has also begun.
