Night works will take place (weather permitting) from:

Sunday 4 December to Tuesday 6 December 2016

Throughout the works the Bruce Highway (Eighth Avenue) will be subject to changed traffic conditions, including detours, minor delays and reduced speed limits.

To minimise disruption to road users, detours have been put in place with advanced warning signs and traffic controllers to notify road users of these changes.

Access to properties will be maintained throughout the duration of the works.

What to expect during these works:

  • Lane closures and detours
  • Minimal access restrictions
  • Traffic controllers on site to direct road users
  • Speed restrictions and road safety signage

Every effort will be made to minimise noise however, residents and businesses can expect to hear reversing vehicle warning signals. Workplace Health and Safety regulations stipulate that these beepers cannot be turned off, even in residential areas.
