Work on the relocation of underground services alongside existing footpaths is taking longer to complete due to unfavourable weather conditions and work will now extend into next week with the view to complete as soon as possible.
To provide a safe working environment for construction workers and the community, the speed limit on Horse Park Drive will be reduced to 40 km per hour during the work hours 9.00am until 4.00pm.
Footpaths will remain open throughout construction, although during work hours footpaths will be narrower than usual to accommodate the safe work zone. Traffic controllers will be in place to control and guide footpath traffic past the work zone.
All construction works will aim to be undertaken outside of peak hours to allow maximum movement of foot, cycle and vehicle traffic in the area. Construction will occur from Monday to Saturday.
Construction of the Horse Park Drive Duplication between Anthony Rolfe Avenue and Mulligans Flat Road is expected to be completed late in 2018 and includes new traffic lights at Francis Forde Boulevard, Katherine Avenue south and Mulligans Flat Road.
