COUNCIL will be carrying out work that will improve safety at the Sydney and Alfred streets roundabout from this Sunday (June 26).
The work involves installing new median islands, pedestrian refuge islands, all abilities ramps, new road pavement and line marking.
This will improve the overall safety of the area and improve visibility for drivers and pedestrians.
Construction is expected to take about six weeks to complete, weather permitting.
To help minimise the impacts to businesses and traffic in the area, work will be undertaken at night between the hours of 6pm and 6am, Sunday to Thursday. There will also be some instances where day works are required for specific activities.
Road closures and detours will be in place each night with normal traffic conditions reinstated each morning.
Motorists are asked to follow the directions of all signage in the area and the instructions of traffic controllers.
Some centre car parking on Alfred Street will be removed during the works, these parks will be barricaded off when they are unavailable.
No changes will occur to the existing bus stop locations on either Alfred or Sydney streets.
This project is funded by the Australian Government’s Black Spot Program and Mackay Regional Council.
