Roundabout Works

Works include:

  • Asphalt resurfacing - involves road closure on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 February from 7:00am to 5:30pm;
  • Reducing the speed limit on the approaches to the roundabout to 30km/hr;
  • On-road stencilling of bicycle symbols to advise all road-users that cyclists are encouraged to ‘take the lane’ and use the traffic lane to travel through the roundabout;

While works are underway, the roundabout will be closed to through traffic. Temporary U-turn facilities will be in place at each approach to the roundabout. There will be a temporary loss of car parking at this time.
