The road closure will be effective from Monday May 8 and anticipated to be in place (weather permitting) until the end of June.

The Roads and Maritime Service (RMS) has identified the intersection as a black spot under their safer roads initiatives and has allocated $2 million to the upgrade.

Council thanks motorists for their patience and understanding. These works are necessary to make this arterial road and intersection safer and prevent future fatalities.
