Southern Expressway partial closure for routine line marking works

22 April 2020

Motorists are advised of routine line marking works on the Southern Expressway, which will require partial closures of the expressway on Sunday, 26 April, and Sunday, 3 May.

Every effort will be made to reduce the impact on motorists by conducting the work during off peak times.

To safely facilitate the works the following traffic restrictions will be in place:

Sunday, 26 April – Southbound only (6am to midday)

  • Initially the expressway will be closed from Marion Road/South Road to Panalatinga Road. As works progress south, the next section to be closed will be between Sherriffs Road and Beach Road, and finally the section between Beach Road and Main South Road. As works are completed in each section, the expressway will be re-opened.

Sunday, 3 May – Northbound only (6am to midday)

  • Initially the expressway will be closed at Main South Road to Beach Road. As works progress north, the next section to be closed will be between Beach Road and Sherriffs Road. This will be followed by the section from Sherriffs Road to Panalatinga Road and Panalatinga Road to Marion/South Road. As works are completed in each section, the expressway will be re-opened.

Alternative traffic routes will be available and signage will be in place to advise motorists of detours. Please plan ahead, allow extra travel time and take extra care when workers are on site. Observe speed limits and lane restrictions when travelling through the area.

Emergency vehicles will have access to the expressway at all times.

The department thanks motorists for their patience during these important works.
