The project, which starts on Thursday, 11 August, will include lane closures and occasional overnight road closures.

  • Sunday, 21 August, 4:30pm – Monday, 22 August, 6:00am, for construction work.
  • Tuesday, 30 August, 8pm – Wednesday, 31August, 6:00am, for the removal of concrete protection barriers.

Access will be maintained at all times for residents and businesses, while pedestrian access to footpaths and the subway will be also be maintained. Cyclists will be able to use the route as usual.
