Road widening works on Angels Beach Drive and the new connection to the industrial estate via Sheather Street are now complete.
Extended dual lead in/lead out lanes and median strip have been constructed travelling northwards on Angels Beach Drive (past Sheather Street).
Sheather Street has been extended to connect with Angels Beach Drive and once opened will be left turn in/left out only (no right turn permitted). The Sheather Street connection will open to traffic when line-marking and clean-up has been completed.
Works under construction
Road pavement reconstruction and widening works are underway on Bangalow Road south, between the roundabout and Moon Street. Drainage, kerb and channel, and footpath works are progressing in this area.
Bangalow Road, between the roundabout and Moon Street, is expected to reopen to traffic in late June (weather and site conditions permitting). The entire project is expected to be completed in July 2022.
During the closure motorists need to detour via Fox and Kerr Streets and access to Kentwell Community Centre remains via the Moon Street entrance only.
Intersection widening works are also continuing on Bangalow Road north, between Kerr Street and the roundabout, where two-way traffic is being maintained.
Dual lanes will be constructed in this section and a new central concrete median. When these works are complete the Bangalow Road/Clark Street intersection will become left in/left out only (no right turn).
To alleviate congestion and avoid travel delays please:
- Allow extra travel time.
- Avoid non-essential travel during peak morning and afternoon periods.
Speed limits are reduced to 40kmph in construction zones and temporary pedestrian and cyclist detours are also in place around work zones.
Council is making every effort to complete these works as quickly as possible. Thank you to the community for their ongoing patience as these project works are carried out.
