  • The work through the roundabout will be done in two stages.
  • Stage 1 involves work on the north and west side of the roundabout which will commence on Wednesday 28 March 2012 for a duration of approximately 2 weeks.
  • During construction the inside walls of the trench may require sheetpiles to be installed to protect in ground services. This installation will cause some vibrations and noise.
  • Following the completion of stage 1, work will commence on the south and west side of the roundabout for a duration of approximately 2 weeks. An update work notice will be sent out prior to the second stage.

Traffic Arrangements

On Gayhurst Road (between Coopers Road and McBratneys Road) one way traffic will be maintained towards the McBratneys Road end.

The current stop and go system on Gayhurst Road (from Claydon Place) will continue to operate.

Traffic from Dallington Terrace along McBratneys Road will have no entry (see the red solid line on the map) through the roundabout and will need to follow the detour along Coopers Road via Belfield Street.

Traffic from Locksley Avenue along McBratneys Road will have entry through the roundabout. But no right turn into Gayhurst Road.

Traffic will not be able to exit from Strathfield Avenue into Gayhurst Road.
