The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) would like to advise of upcoming safety works on the intersection of Old Cleveland and Stanbrough Roads in Belmont.
Works are expected to start Monday 7 April 2014 and be completed by end of June 2014, weather and construction conditions permitting.
Overnight works will be carried out Monday to Friday between 7pm and 5am, and some day works will occur Monday to Friday between 9am and 3pm.
The Old Cleveland Road and Stanbrough Road intersection has an ongoing history of traffic incidents. Due to this history and the proximity of these incidents to the local community, residents and recreational facilities, TMR has committed funding from the Safer Roads Sooner program to upgrade this intersection.
The upgrade of the Old Cleveland Road and Stanbrough Road intersection will improve safety at this intersection for road users and the local community, particularly for turning vehicles.
The safety project works will involve:
· permanent closure of existing median
· left-in, left-out configuration for Stanbrough Road
· left-in, left-out configuration for Main Drive
· construction of acceleration lane for Stanbrough Road traffic
· relocation of Translink bus stop (routes 250, 270, 856 and N250) approximately 110 metres west of Stanbrough Road to ensure safety for merging traffic and buses
· relocation of Australia Post mail box approximately 150 metres west of Stanbrough Road.
Motorists can use nearby traffic signals on Old Cleveland Road at the Cross Street and Tilley Street intersections for turning movements. These signals are located within 1.5km of the Old Cleveland and Stanbrough Roads intersection.
Some traffic delays, lane closures, construction noise and reduced speed limits through the work site can be expected. Traffic control will be in place to ensure safety of road workers and motorists.
TMR apologises for any inconvenience and appreciates your patience while these important works are carried out.If you require further information on this project, please contact Mr Ron Michel, Regional Director, Metropolitan Region on 3066 4299 or by email email@example.com during business hours.
