WORK to fix cracking and wearing on a 2km stretch of Reynolds Road in Mt Pleasant will begin Monday.

City of Melville said the repairs will take place between Bombard Street and Crest Avenue.

“The works have been prioritised as essential to address the significant cracking of the wearing course which must be replaced to prevent structural failure of the pavement layer,” the local council said in a statement.

“Black asphalt will replace the wearing course in the driving lanes, with red asphalt used in the bicycle lanes to provide a clear, visual route for cyclists.”

A number of civil upgrades will also be made to improve the current infrastructure.

All work will be carried out during daylight working hours to avoid potential noise complaints.

Motorists have been asked to reduce their speed along the route and follow any detours.

The City said it had worked with the Public Transport Authority to ensure buses can continue to travel through the work area without disruption.

Work should be finished by February 15.

Works will be carried out in three stages

December 4 to 12: Profiling and asphalting of the bottom layer
December 13 to February 7: Civil works
February 8 to 15: Asphalting of the top layer
