Construction works are progressing to upgrade three intersections along Kent/Novar streets.

Based on current program progress, the current closures including Dudley Street, Kent Street bridge and the Adelaide Avenue off-ramp will be completed at the end of March (weather permitting).

We understand these closures are impacting travel times, particularly during the morning peak period on weekdays.

To help ease the traffic impact to local residents, stop/slow traffic controller arrangements will be in place at the Hopetoun Circuit interchange during the morning peak period on weekdays from Wednesday 15 March until the closures are lifted.

When these road closures are lifted at the end of March, major road works for this project will be complete with traffic lights operational at the three intersections. This brings the program forward by around six months.  

Minor works will continue beyond March, including landscaping work. These works will be conducted outside of peak travel times and are not expected to cause traffic disruptions.
