Re: TEMPORARY CHANGES TO TRAFFIC CONDITIONS SATURDAY 24 NOVEMBER, 6AM – 5PM.
Temporary closure of a section of Sippy Downs Drive (between University Way and Siena Catholic College) and traffic detour via Service Road.
Dear Sippy Downs Residents and interested stakeholders.
Thank you for your ongoing patience regarding construction of the Sippy Downs Drive Upgrade Project. We will soon be issuing another construction update which will include news of the construction break over the Christmas and New Year period and details regarding next year’s 2019 construction program.
In the interim and as part of the project, Council must dig trenches across Sippy Downs Drive to install stormwater pipes.
To safely undertake this work a section of Sippy Downs Drive, between University Way and Siena Catholic College, must be temporarily closed to vehicle traffic for a period of one day, Saturday 24 November from 6 am – 5 pm (weather permitting).
On this day, light vehicle traffic will be redirected along the Sippy Downs Drive Service Road as one-way traffic. Buses and heavy vehicles will be detoured via an alternative route. University Way will remain open.
The speed limit along the Service Road will be posted as 40 km per hour and signage and traffic control will help to redirect motorists.
The entry to Siena Catholic College will also be temporarily closed during this time. The project team thanks the School Principals and Parish Council for their assistance.
We thank you in advance for your understanding of these mandatory works and request that all motorists exercise additional caution when driving along the Service Road this Saturday.
Should you have any questions about this work, please feel free to contact us via the details below.
