UPDATE:  Due to the bushfires in Lower Beechmont planned roadworks have been deferred until the danger is over.

Work will start when it is safe to do so on #Beechmont Road near the intersection of Bottletree Lane with stop/slow traffic conditions in place.

From Wednesday, 13 November 2019 the road will be closed when boulders are being removed from above the road. Half hour road closures will be in place (intermittent closures between the intersections of Bottletree Lane and Brushbox Road) between 9am and 3pm, Monday to Friday (and Saturdays if required). The half hour closures are expected to be in place for up to four weeks.

Outside of working hours, one lane will remain open through this section with temporary traffic signals in place. Once the boulders are removed, the remaining work will be completed under stop/slow traffic arrangements with short delays.

Variable message signs are in place to communicate information to motorists and residents.

Weather, site conditions and contractor availability may impact the proposed work schedule.
