River Street Duplication – Partial Closure of Sunset Avenue in Phases 4 and 5

As part of the River Street Duplication works, the intersection of Sunset Avenue and River Street will be partially closed during Phase 4 and 5 of the project.

As part of Phase 4 works, the left hand turn from River Street into Sunset Avenue will be closed from Thursday 10 June for approximately four weeks.

During Phase 4 the following changes will be in place:

  • Inbound left turn from River Street into Sunset Avenue closed, please detour via Barlows Road or Horizon Drive
  • Access to the Toyota and Wholesale car yards will be via Barlows Road or Horizon Drive.
  • The median strip at Sunset Ave will be permanently removed to allow easier access for larger vehicles including buses in and out of Sunset Avenue. A new pedestrian refuge will be installed on Sunset Avenue towards the end of the project.
  • The bus stop temporarily relocated during Phase 3 will be reinstated to its original location adjacent to Hibiscus Gardens Caravan Park.

As our crew moves into Phase 5 of the project, the outbound left turn from Sunset Avenue to River Street will close, and the inbound turn from River Street will reopen.

Access at the Sunset Avenue and River Street intersection will return to normal once Phase 5 of the project is completed.

Council thanks residents for their patience as these works are completed.
