Construction underway, road closures in place
The first stage of the Jumping Creek Road reconstruction project is now underway.
With works starting in mid-April, this important project aims to improve the road’s safety while upgrading the existing infrastructure and increasing connectivity for pedestrians. Weather permitting, the construction of this stage is expected to be complete by the end of August 2020.
The road is now closed between Yarra Road and Ringwood-Warrandyte Road and will remain closed for the duration of this construction period. Only local resident and emergency vehicle access is permitted during this time. The road closure is in place for the safety of all road users during construction and to allow the works be completed as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Detours are in place with traffic diverted via Yarra Road and Brysons Road. To prepare for the increased traffic flows along these roads, some preliminary works were completed along the diversion route. Additional road maintenance works, signage and speed control signs are currently being arranged and the condition of the detour routes is being closely monitored.
