Property access:

There are no planned access restrictions to property or business driveways. Advance notice will be provided if there is a need to temporarily restrict driveway access.

Traffic management:

In order to safely maintain traffic through the existing junction of Golden Grove Road and Hancock Road during construction of the new roundabout, road users will be directed around the partially constructed roundabout, with barriers in place to separate traffic from construction zones.

The following traffic management will be in place from the end of May 2020:

• southbound traffic to be diverted through the new roundabout; and

• northbound traffic will continue along the existing road.

There will be no change to existing Hancock Road traffic management to and from Golden Grove Road.

Sections of Golden Grove Road and Hancock Road within the project construction site, will remain open to traffic with a 25km/h speed restriction in place while workers are onsite. Lane closures and other speed restrictions may apply, subject to onsite conditions.

Please plan ahead and take extra care when workers are on site. Observe speed limits, lane restrictions and traffic controllers when travelling through the area.
