Work on a new roundabout at The Lakes Way and Black Head road intersection will begin in 2022, however the start date will depend on the availability of some materials for the project..
MidCoast Council has awarded the contract to Ditchfield Contracting and the work will take about eight months to complete.
"We are experiencing a supply chain issue with the concrete pipes required for this project, so once the contractor secures supply, we'll be able to advise of a start date for the works," council's manager projects and engineering, Rhett Pattison said.
Funded by the Australian Government through Transport for NSW, the three way intersection will be upgraded to a three-leg roundabout.
The plans include service adjustments, some changes to nearby property access, kerb and guttering, road and drainage works as well as bus bays and footpaths.
There will be significant periods of traffic control during the construction.
"We will provide further updates closer to the commencement of works, however motorists can expect delays and should allow additional travel time and are encouraged to seek alternate routes where practical," Rhett Pattison said.
The car park, accessed from Blackhead Road and located adjacent to the intersection, will be closed for the duration of the project. Bus stop locations will also be shifted outside of the project area.
