Roadworks on the horizon

Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade: Foote Street works

IT MUST be school holidays soon, as Major Roads Projects Victoria (MRPV) Lane announce further road closures will be required across the Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade as completion works continue.
A statement from MRPV says there will be intermittent nightworks between 7pm and 5am Sundays to Thursdays — and if required on some Friday nights— between now and December 21 for final asphalting and line-marking (weather pending).
These works will progress across all legs of the intersection.
Road users are urged to allow extra time as temporary lane closures and traffic management measures will be in place.
Foote Street will be closed at Williamsons Road for limited times, when there will be detours in place using Anderson Street, Porter Street, Church Road, King Street, Lynnwood Parade and High Street.
Local residents will still be able to access their properties during this time with guidance from traffic controllers.
Impacted residents closest to the scheduled works will be notified closer to the date.
The speed limit is reduced to 40 km/h through the Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade and traffic management is in place. Continue to allow extra time for your journey.
