Kensington and Kingsford construction31 July 2017
On Friday 30 June, the Nine Ways roundabout was removed, making way for new traffic lights at this busy Kingsford intersection. The work was a resounding success, with traffic moving smoothly through the intersection in the following weeks. The next major project will be the installation of traffic signals at Sturt Street during August.
The final construction site on Anzac Parade was mobilised during July, with work starting between Alison Road and Abbotford Street. As part of this work, the two southbound lanes on Anzac Parade are now divided around the worksite, just south of Alison Road through to Ascot Street, Kensington. Both lanes remain open to traffic and this arrangement is expected to remain in place until September. Work is progressing quickly in this area and some new track is already in place.
In Zone 29, Anzac Parade between Todman Avenue and High Street, track installation is substantially complete, which is a great achievement. The next major task is to carry out stormwater work on the western side of Anzac Parade between Todman Avenue and High Street, and deliver new pavement along this section.
From mid-August, work in this section will move to the kerbside on either side of the road, with all four lanes of traffic to move to the middle of Anzac Parade. This will allow crews to concentrate on kerb and road adjustments.
More than 3000 metres of track is now in place across Kensington and Kingsford.
