Roadworks to continue the construction of a Roundabout on the corner of Egan and Maritana/Boulder Road commenced this morning.
Detours are in place from McDonald Street when travelling Northbound, While another detour is in place Southbound at Hannan Street.
Access to PUMA Service Station is still available.
After preliminary drainage works over the last two months, the next step has taken some time due to the removal and relocation of critical services. The intersection was originally earmarked for a roundabout several years ago, but was dismissed in favour of Traffic Lights at McDonald and Boulder Road. However, since that took place several traffic accidents have occurred at the intersection and this resulted in funding becoming available for the construction of a roundabout to alleviate future incidents.
An end date on construction is not known at this stage.
