Upgrading of High Street is underway and will improve safety and reduce congestion along High Street.
Works include the construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of High Street and Stirling Highway and a wide median on High Street to separate traffic lanes.
New underpasses will also be constructed at the junctions of Forrest Street and Stirling Highway, and Montreal Street and High Street.
Horrie Long Reserve - Drainage infiltration works commencing in mid-October
The storm water drainage network is being upgraded as part of the High Street Upgrade project.
To safely install the new drainage, access to the cricket pitch and the centre of park will be closed from mid-October. Fencing will be installed progressively, commencing during the week of 12 October 2020.
The works are expected to take approximately three to four months to complete.
Signage has been posted at the park with information about access changes and the works.
Temporary roundabout at the intersection High Street and Stirling Highway
As part of the High Street Upgrade, a temporary roundabout now replaces the signalised High Street and Stirling Highway intersection to enable the safe and efficient construction of the permanent roundabout.
The temporary roundabout will:
- enable fewer disruptive traffic switches for the remainder of the project, minimising driver confusion and improving safety; and
- provide construction access to larger sections of the intersection, to help build the permanent roundabout more efficiently.
As more of the permanent roundabout is constructed, traffic will be moved to the new sections in stages, until the permanent roundabout is commissioned in mid-2021.
Comprehensive pedestrian and cyclist detours will also be required to construct and implement the temporary roundabout and build the new permanent roundabout.
As the road layout may be unfamiliar, please drive with care and follow the signage provided.
