Other comments

These works are part of the annual capital works program. During excavation on the western side there will be a north bound road closure in place and when completing the eastern side there will be a south bound road closure in place. Minimal disruption with traffic flows is anticipated for the duration of works. Road closures are in place due to limited road widths and traffic safety over the crest of the hill from oncoming traffic while the excavators are working.
