We want to update you on the outcome of our Council meeting held on Tuesday, 23 November 2021, about the road treatment options and safety measures at the western section of Arundel Road. Manningham Council resolved in part to approve, ‘a partial road closure of Arundel Road west of the Knees Road intersection, (allowing emergency, truck and cycling access only), to address traffic safety concerns raised by the community’.
The partial closure of Arundel Road (west) at Knees Road intersection will provide a safe environment for pedestrians and cyclists to share the road with local traffic. Traffic movement is not expected to be adversely impacted in the area. The road closure will allow for emergency vehicles, waste collection vehicles and trucks to continue using the road.
We expect to install a temporary road closure on Arundel Road (west) at the Knees Road intersection soon and construction of the permanent closure is expected in the next few months.
We fully appreciate the time and effort everyone took to provide feedback on the matter and thank you once again for your participation.
