Road users and pedestrians are cautioned to follow the changed traffic conditions including detours, exercise care when travelling through the construction zones and be aware of loose stones and heavy machinery within the work areas.
Signage will also be erected and traffic controllers will be stationed on-site to manage traffic during work hours. Where possible, motorists are advised to avoid the area.
Council thanks motorists in advance for their cooperation and apologises for any temporary delays or inconvenience.
