WORK to repair a 2km stretch of Marmion Street will begin January 15 and take roughly three months to finish.

City of Melville announced today the section of Marmion between Justinian Street and Rome Road would come in for attention.

“The works have been prioritised as essential to address structural failure, deformation and excessive wearing in the wheel paths,” the City said in a statement.

“These works include replacement of the pavement layer and wearing course with black asphalt in the driving lanes and red asphalt in the bicycle lanes and medians.

“A number of civil upgrades and pedestrian safety improvements are also included as part of the works.”

The City said profiling and asphalt improvements would be carried out at night with traffic – including buses – to be detoured around the work area during these times.

The road will be in use during the day.

The repairs should be finished by April 16.
