Intersection improvements at Great Western Highway & Pages Road, St Mary's

Updates and announcements

Open to traffic

We were scheduled to complete the work by the end of August 2018 but had to postpone street lighting upgrades due to design updates.

The following elements have been completed:

  • adjusting the approaches of Pages Road to improve line of sight for right turning vehicles on Pages Road and Charles Hackett Drive
  • extending the right turn bays on the north and south approaches
  • changing the left only lanes to through and left turning lanes for the north and south approaches
  • providing an additional lane on the southern exit of Pages Road
  • adjusting the traffic lights and utilities on Pages Road
  • adjusting and lengthening the median on Pages Road to improve safety.

The following elements are remaining:

  • adding street lights on Pages Road and Charles Hackett Drive

Next steps

We will need to return to site in September to install permanent street lighting along Pages Road and Charles Hackett Drive. We will write to you again before returning to complete the project.

Our work schedule

We will be back on site for up to five nights a week for up to 20 night shifts, and 20 day shifts between Sunday, 23 September 2018 and November 2018, weather permitting. Our night work hours will be between 8pm and 5am from Sunday to Friday. We will not be working public holidays. Our day work hours will be between 7am and 6pm from Monday to Friday. We have included a map to show.

What happens next?

We will continue to update you as we progress with the project.
