How will the work affect you?

Our work may be noisy at times but we will do everything we can to minimise its impact, including completing the noisier tasks by 11pm.

As part of this work, we will set up a site compound about 450 metres away from the work site on Warwick Street. The site compound will be used throughout the project with truck movements in and out of the construction zone during day and night shifts.

Traffic changes

There will be some temporary traffic changes during our work hours to ensure the work zone is safe.

Lane closures will be in place and may affect travel times. Please keep to speed limits and follow signs and traffic controllers’ directions. For the latest traffic updates, you can call 132 701, visit livetraffic.com or download the Live Traffic NSW App.
