27 May 2016

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises works will be undertaken over the next eight weeks, as part of the Darlington Upgrade Project, with the first stage set to commence Sunday 29 May 2016.

The works form part of the trunk water main relocation, and include excavating, pipe installation, backfilling and asphalt reinstatement.

The first stage of works are set to commence, weather permitting, on Sunday 29 May 2016 to Wednesday 1 June 2016, and will be undertaken between 8pm and 7am, along Ayliffes Road St Mary’s, Shepherds Hill Road Darlington and South Road Clovelly Park.

From Sunday 29 May 2016, the following changes to traffic conditions will apply:

  • Ayliffes Road Will be reduced to one lane in both directions on Ayliffes Road between South Road and Norman Street.
  • Shepherds Hill Road Will be reduced to one lane in both directions on Shepherds Hill Road between South Road and Lincoln Road. 

There will be no right turn into or out of Lincoln Avenue into Shepherds Hill Road.

  •  South Road Will be reduced to one lane in both directions on South Road between Quinlan Avenue and Selgar Avenue. 

There will be no right turn permitted into Tobruk Avenue for northbound traffic. There will be no right turn out of Selgar Avenue, Tobruk Avenue or Quinlan Avenue into South Road.

Motorists and road users are requested to take extra care when workers are on site and observe traffic signage and speed and lane restrictions when travelling through the area.

A 25km/h speed restriction will be in place while workers are on site.

The works are being performed at night, to minimise the impact to motorists, however some delays are expected
