Bridges in Coates Gully between Chedaring Road and Coates Road will also be replaced, with works expected to start in early 2021 and due for completion in mid-2021.
In March 2021, intersection improvements are planned at Malabaine Road and Hoggarth Road and are scheduled to be completed by mid-2021.
