The Department of Transport and Main Roads is installing signalised crossings on existing left-turn slip lanes on Takalvan Street at the Bourbong Street and Mulgrave Street intersections.
The works will begin in early October 2021 and are part of a state-wide roll out to improve safety for pedestrians and vulnerable road users.
“The left-turn slip lane at the Takalvan and Bourbong Streets intersection will be lengthened to accommodate the new traffic signals,” a TMR spokesperson said.
“This will require three parallel parking bays to be removed from Takalvan Street.”
Work is scheduled to be undertaken on both intersections simultaneously and is expected to be completed by the end of December 2021, weather and conditions permitting.
The TMR spokesperson said the majority of the Takalvan Street crossing works would have a minimal impact on traffic with most of the construction works to be carried out on the road shoulders.
“However, motorists can expect reduced speed limits and are advised to allow additional travel time during construction as there may be minor delays,” the spokesperson said.
“Works will generally be undertaken during the day from Monday to Friday between 6 am and 6 pm.
“Some nightworks may be required when traffic volumes are reduced, however these works will be carried out under full traffic control.”
