Intersection improvements at Rooty Hill Road North, Jersey Road and Lamb Street, Plumpton

Updates and announcements

Progress so far

We have finished the first two stages of the project, which included removing the roundabout, widening Rooty Hill Road North, electrical work to connect the traffic signals, relocating overhead power lines and poles and some drainage improvements.

The work still to be done includes:

  • road resurfacing
  • building underground drainage
  • installing streetlights, traffic control signals and the new kerb and gutter

Our work schedule

We will be on site to complete the remaining work for another 50 night shifts and 80 day shifts, between Friday 4 August 2017 and Friday 22 December, weather permitting. Our night shift hours will be from 8pm to 5am, between Sunday and Friday. Our day shift hours will be from 7am to 6pm on weekdays and from 8am to 1pm on Saturday.

How will the work affect you?

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