MidCoast Council road crews are about to start work on a stretch of Manning Point Road.
The works, which were to commence in mid-July, will now begin on Monday, October 22 between Carramar Drive and Sandridge Road. The project involves a full reconstruction, including road and shoulder widening, lifting the road level, resurfacing, and traffic guidance improvements.
The work will be undertaken between 7am and 5pm on weekdays and motorists can expect short delays.
“Like any roadworks there will be some disruption to local traffic while crews are on-site, however we’ve planned the project to ensure access is maintained in both directions under traffic control,” MidCoast Council’s Daniel Park said.
Lane closures will be managed by traffic controllers and/or alternating traffic lights, while the road will be opened to normal two-way traffic outside of work hours. Reduced speed limits will apply at all times.
“Motorists are asked to be alert to changing road surface conditions, to observe directions from our crew members and roadworks signage, and to travel with caution in and around the vicinity while we carry out these important improvement works”, Daniel added.
Further details and confirmed timings will be provided to local residents as the project progresses, and crews will liaise closely with local property owners to minimise disruption to driveway access. It is expected the works will continue for about six months, weather-permitting.
