Works update - as at Monday 16 October 2017

Due to the predicted impending wet weather, works will not be undertaken this week.

Works will recommence next Monday 23 October and it is anticipated that they will completed by Friday 27 October, weather permitting.

Upgrade work on Airport Avenue is underway until early November 2017, subject to weather conditions.

This work will be undertaken overnight between the hours of 6:00pm and 6:00am.

Changes to speed limits will apply throughout the work period with an upper limit of 60km/h for the entire length of Airport Avenue in place during the day. During the night, when works are underway, the speed limit will be further reduced to 40km/h in the work zones.

Traffic management will be in place as required. Only minor delays are expected and the priority will be given to traffic inbound to the airport.

Works will start on the airport section first, moving towards the Lake Street and Sheridan Street intersections.

People are encouraged to allow an additional 10 - 15 minutes for their road journey to or from the airport.

The Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk carpark will be temporarily closed until Saturday 28 October 2017.

Thank you for your patience during this project.
