Traffic management and detours will be in place and motorists are advised to access Yoongarillup Road via Sues Road during the partial road closure at Vasse Highway.  The City will endeavour to minimise any impact or delays the works may have.  Should you have any questions relating to Yoongarillup Road Reconstruction works, please contact the City’s Engineering Technical Officer, Raelene Lamb on 0417 068 297.

The roundabout works are expected to take approximately seven weeks to complete.  Advance warning of the works will be provided via the use of variable message boards located at strategic locations in the vicinity of the works.

The closure of various approaches to the intersection will be required and traffic flow through the LIA will be impacted.   At various stages throughout the project, Strelly Street will be closed after hours to accommodate night works.  Traffic management will be in place and delays should be expected.  Alternatively, it is advisable to seek alternative routes around the works wherever possible.

While works are planned to commence early March 2019, extending through to May 2019, no work will be conducted over the Easter break, between 19 April and 22 April and roads will be open and operating as usual.

The first stages of the project between Dunn Bay Road and Tarn View will take approximately 2-3 weeks.  During that time motorists travelling south along Cape Naturaliste Road will be detoured via Naturaliste Terrace.  Northbound traffic will continue to use Cape Naturaliste Road as normal.  Later stages of the works, north of Naturaliste Terrace, will necessitate the use of traffic control.

Advance warning signage will be provided onsite, ahead of the works and throughout any detours and variable message boards will be located at strategic locations.  Should you have any questions relating to these works, please contact the City’s Engineering Technical Officer, Raelene Lamb on 0417 068 297.
