KINGSFORD AND KENSINGTON CONSTRUCTION UPDATE27 June 2017
The Kingsford Nine Ways roundabout will be replaced with traffic signals from Friday 30 June as part of work to prepare for the CBD and South East Light Rail.
The intersection will be upgraded to make way for the Kingsford Light Rail interchange, a new transport hub to provide better connections to bus stops and help revitalise the surrounding area.
The removal of the Nine Ways roundabout will also result in a number of traffic changes:
- No right turn from Anzac Parade to Rainbow Street
- No right turn from Rainbow Street to Anzac Parade
- No right turn from Gardeners Road to Anzac Parade.
Pedestrian crossings will be maintained and additional signs will be installed to encourage pedestrians to use these designated crossings.
Drivers travelling from the Eastern Beaches to Kingsford are advised to travel along Rainbow Street, turn right on to Avoca Street, then turn left on to Barker Street, to Anzac Parade.
Drivers travelling from Gardeners Road to Maroubra are advised to travel east along Gardeners Road, veer right on to Bunnerong Road, then turn left on to Maroubra Road.
Drivers travelling from Maroubra to Coogee are advised to travel north along Anzac Parade, turn right on to Maroubra Road, left on to Malabar Road then continue to Arden Street.
Drivers should take extra care around the changed road conditions, allow extra travel time, take note of the changes to right-turn movements and plan their trip ahead of time.
Buses on Anzac Parade will continue as normal during this phase of construction. There may be minor impacts to some buses on Gardeners Road that use Nine Ways to access Anzac Parade southbound. Customers and students will be informed of any changes made to minimise impacts to travel times.

Track installation is progressing well throughout Kensington and Kingsford. In Zone 29, Anzac Parade between Todman Avenue and High Street, around 80 per cent of track is now in place. As track construction is completed in each area, the focus will shift to kerbside works, with some lane changes in place as work progresses.
