Albany Ring Road Project Update

Published on Tuesday, 25 October 2022 at 11:06:20 AM

To accommodate construction of the Albany Ring Road, a small area of rock outcrop will be removed by drilling and blasting in the vicinity of Lower Denmark Road and Roundhay Street in Gledhow. A temporary exclusion zone will be created prior to and during the blasting activities.

Blasting activities are scheduled to occur over several weeks on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 2 November 2022 at 3pm
  • Wednesday 9 November 2022 at 3pm
  • Wednesday 16 November 2022 at 3pm
  • Wednesday 23 November 2022 at 3pm
  • Wednesday 30 November 2022 at 3pm

The following roads will be closed from 3pm on each of the blast dates (see map):

  • Lower Denmark Road from Frenchman Bay Road to Gledhow Road South
  • Roundhay Street between Lower Denmark Road and Kitson Street
  • Allerton Street between Lower Denmark Road and Stirling Street

Traffic will be stopped for approximately 10 minutes and may take up to 10 minutes to clear once the roads are reopened.

Traffic delays of up to 20 minutes should be anticipated on each day. Road users are encouraged to use alternative routes to avoid lengthy delays.

Traffic management will be in place to stop road users from entering the exclusion zone.

Dates and duration of works are subject to weather conditions.

Please proceed with caution, adhere to the speed limit and signage throughout the area. Plan your journey, consider alternative routes, and allow additional journey time.
