How will night works affect you?
Road works involve the use of noise generating machinery. We make every effort to minimise noise by completing noisier activities earlier in the night and turn off machinery and vehicles when they are not in use.
There can be temporary traffic changes to make sure that our work zones are safe.
Lane closures and a 40km/h speed limits are in place during work hours which may affect your travel times.
We ask that you please keep to speed limits and follow the direction of any traffic controllers and signs.
