Council decision regarding Arundel Road, Park Orchards

Manningham Council

We want to update you on the outcome of our Council meeting held on Tuesday, 23 November 2021, regarding the road treatment options and safety measures at the western section of Arundel Road.

Manningham resolved in part to approve, ‘a partial road closure of Arundel Road west of the Knees Road intersection, (allowing emergency, truck and cycling access only), to address traffic safety concerns raised by the community’.

There was considerable community engagement and we fully appreciate the time and effort everyone took to have their say on the matter.

The partial closure of Arundel Road (west) at Knees Road intersection will provide a safe environment for pedestrians and cyclists to share the road with local traffic.

Traffic movement is not expected to be adversely impacted in the area. The road closure will allow for emergency vehicles, waste collection vehicles and trucks to continue using the road.

A temporary road closure is expected to be installed on Arundel Road (west) at the Knees Road intersection soon and the permanent closure constructed in the next few months.

We thank you once again for your participation.
