Changed traffic conditions on Lawrence Hargrave Drive to install new drains

Tuesday 3 May 2016

Member for Heathcote Lee Evans has announced work will be carried out this month to improve safety for motorists on Lawrence Hargrave Drive between Clifton and Scarborough.

Mr Evans said the NSW Government has allocated $450,000 to replace pipes and install new drains under the road to provide a safer road surface.

“This work will ensure stormwater is quickly removed from the road after heavy rainfall,” Mr Evans said.

“Less water on the road will improve safety for motorists and also reduce future maintenance costs by creating less wear and tear on the road surface.”

Single lane closures will be in place between 8am and 5pm from Monday 9 May to Friday 13 May to prepare for the work with a temporary 40 km/h speed limit in place for the safety of workers and pedestrians.

“Around 450 metres of Lawrence Hargrave Drive north of Scarborough Public School will be closed in both directions from 6pm on Sunday 15 May to 5pm on Friday 20 May to allow work to be carried out safely and efficiently,” Mr Evans said.

Detours will be in place via Lawrence Hargrave Drive, Bulli Pass and the M1 Princes Motorway and are expected to add up to 30 minutes to journey times.

Traffic control and signs will be in place to direct motorists who are asked to plan their trip and allow extra travel time.

Pedestrian access will remain as usual but cyclists will need to dismount and use the temporary footpath provided.

Roads and Maritime Services thanks the community for its patience while work is carried out.
