“This important work includes replacing a section of median along Wyong Road with a new raised median kerb and installing roadside barriers to improve safety for all road users at the roundabout.
“The northbound concrete surface through the roundabout will be improved with drainage be upgraded to reduce wet weather crash risk.
“Residents are advised in order for the work to be carried out, two eucalyptus gum trees and six cheese trees near the footpath area will be removed and more suitable trees replanted once work is complete to install the safety barriers,” the Roads and Maritime spokesperson said.
Work is expected to take five weeks to complete, weather permitting.
Where possible work will be carried out at night from Sunday and Thursdays between 6pm and 6am however some work will need to be completed during the week between 7am and 5pm.
To ensure the safety of workers, motorists and other road users, a temporary 40km/h speed limit will remain in place during work and traffic controllers and signs will help direct motorists as lane closures will be in effect during this work.
