SOME residents living in a group of streets at Rosebud are upset that roads have been resurfaced despite appearing to be in good condition.
The work involved “microsurfacing” the roads with “graded aggregates and bituminous polymer modified emulsion”.
Residents were asked by the Mornington Peninsula Shire to not use the roads after 7am and warned that driveways could be blocked for up to four hours once the work started.
Streets affected by the works were Curlew Drive, and Currawong, Sanderling, Dotterel, Whimbrel. Egret and Sandpiper courts.
However, at least one street, Sandpiper Court, was blocked for six and a half hours.
Residents in Curlew Drive have now been told that weather conditions made it impossible for their street to be resurfaced and that they will be notified on which day they should not park after 7am in the street or on nature strips.
The shire said road workers would observe social distancing and hygienic practices as there would be no “face to face communications possible”.
It also warned that after the work was finished, “stones may be ‘flicked’ by tyres until pavement cures and streets will be swept in two to four weeks”.
