Street lighting works are programmed for Pier Point Rd from Monday 30 April 2018 for an estimated 4 weeks.

This work involves installing new LED street lights on steel poles within the centre median of the road, between the Southern Esplanade carpark entrance (Lagoon carpark) and the roundabout, and new street lights on the northern side of the roundabout.

During this time, the northbound lane will be closed to all traffic.

To access Marina Point/Marlin Marina and The Pier Shopping Centre underground car park, motorists must turn left into the Southern Esplanade carpark, and travel around the carpark to the roundabout.

Work hours will be 7am to 4pm Mondays to Fridays, with possibly one evening of night works required when standing the new street poles. Once the street lighting works are complete, Council will be trialling a 3D pedestrian crossing on Pier Point Rd.

Please observe and obey traffic controllers and signs advising the changes to normal traffic conditions.

Council appreciates your patience and cooperation during this time.
