Construction snapshot on Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade

Porter Street

Road surfacing

Heading into the final stage of works to upgrade the Porter Street roundabout to traffic lights, we’ll continue to prepare the road surface for the new intersection. Over the next three months lane closures and changed traffic conditions will continue on all legs of the intersection as we build new pavement and install new drainage throughout the area. We’ll notify directly impacted residents regarding night works closer to the date.

Major works at Porter Street roundabout

Works will now ramp up at Porter Street with major construction expected to be in the coming months. During these works there will be road closures with detours in place, which will result in additional travel times through the area. There will be a dedicated lane for southbound drivers on Fitzsimons Lane to access the Water Tunnel car wash. Access to the Shell service station and MyCar Tyre and Auto will be maintained. These above ground works will see the intersection converted to traffic lights.

Foote Street

Relocating power lines underground

Installation of new drainage and construction of pavement will continue in the centre medians of Williamsons Road either side of the Foote Street intersection. As we work to relocate overhead power lines underground, we will be boring and trenching on Foote Street, west of the intersection. To complete these important works we’ll need to temporarily close one end of Glendale Avenue, with lane closures continuing across the Foote Street intersection. We’ll also need to trench and bore around the southwest corner of Williamsons Road and Foote Street. Where possible we will complete these works during the day.

Main Road

Completion works

Following on from our major construction campaign we’ll be tidying up around the Main Road/Fitzsimons Lane intersection and finishing off work on medians and the Fitzsimons Lane retaining wall. There will be minor traffic management in place during this time for the ongoing safety of drivers and workers.
