MAIN Roads has confirmed it will repair damaged roof tiles at a Carramar house.

A Balladong Loops resident, whose house is near the current works on Wanneroo Road, said he recently spotted tiles slipping off the roof and mortar damage, which he said was caused by the machinery pounding the road.

Main Roads spokesman Dean Roberts confirmed the project team had inspected the property and “some roof tiles had slipped and required repair and a re-grout”.

“Cracks in some of the tiles were also observed, requiring non-urgent repair,” he said.

“While it’s difficult to confirm the source of the damage, it is acknowledged that recent works in the area did result in vibrations.”

He said the displaced roof tiles were “promptly put back into place by our Alliance partner’s handyman” but the cracked roof tiles will need to be replaced.

“The homeowner has agreed to submit quotes for the repair of the cracked tiles, which will be attended to at the end of the project,” Mr Roberts said.

The works are part of the project to widen Wanneroo Road between Joondalup and Flynn drives and upgrade the junctions at Carramar Road and Golf Links Drive.

Construction scheduled to be complete in late 2018.

THE opening of the junction at Wanneroo Road and Golf Links Drive has been postponed.

Main Roads previously advised Golf Links Drive would re-open to traffic in mid-June “pending weather and other factors”.

However, an update email sent yesterday said the removal of the barriers at night and the opening of the road had been postponed to late-July.

“We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your continued patience,” it said.

There will also be a temporary road closure at the junction of Wanneroo and Carramar roads for two weeks from late-July to mid-August.
