Road closures in place as roundabout works commence
Published: 12 Jan 2024 9:38am
Road closures are now in place at the intersection of Holbrook Road and Dunns Road due to works to install a roundabout.
Traffic from the eastern (Lloyd Road) and western (Dunns Road) sides of the intersection is being diverted, with Holbrook Road remaining open to northbound and southbound traffic under traffic control.
The detours were put in place on Thursday 11 January and will be in effect for the duration of the works, which are expected to take around eight weeks to complete, weather permitting.
Director Strategy & Projects Phil McMurray said “this is the third and final stage of the current Dunns Road Upgrade project.
“The upgrade of the intersection of Dunns Road and Holbrook Road to include a roundabout is necessary to improve safety for motorists, especially once Dunns Road re-opens.
“Originally the intersection was to be closed to traffic from Dunns Road (western side) and Lloyd Road (eastern side) from mid-November, however the contractor decided to keep it open under traffic control while undertaking preparation works.”
During the works to install the roundabout, traffic west of Holbrook Road (from Dunns Road) is diverted via Currawang Drive and Mirbelia Drive.
Traffic east of Holbrook Road (from Lloyd Road) is diverted via Mallee Road, Springvale Drive and Featherwood Drive.
There is no access to Lloyd Road or Dunns Road from Holbrook Road, these roads must be accessed via the detours.
Dunns Road will remain closed to through traffic between Kunzea Place and the Olympic Highway until the completion of the project.
