What is happening?

26 November - 7 December

Kings Way on ramp

Works will take place over four non-consecutive nights from 26 November to 7 December between 7pm and 5am. These works are required to take place at night to minimise impacts on the road network and ensure the safety of workers.

The Kings Way on ramp and access to Kavanagh Street will be closed during these works. Drivers should follow detour signage in place.

These works are expected to generate intermittent periods of medium to high level noise associated with saw cutting, use of non-destructive digging unit and asphalt reinstatement.
