Construction progresses in Kensington and Kingsford

27 February 2017

Work will start in two new construction zones in Kensington and Kingsford in the coming weeks.

Construction will get underway in zone 28, Anzac Parade between Abbotford Street and Todman Avenue, from Friday 3 March. In this section of Anzac Parade, a new construction compound will be established in the centre lanes of the roadway for the first stage of construction; further traffic configurations will be implemented to facilitate the construction of the Light Rail. Existing bus lanes in both directions will be removed. These lanes will be open to general traffic and will operate as clearways.

Work will also start in zone 31, Anzac Parade south of Rainbow Street, from early April and new traffic signals will be installed at the Nine Ways intersection in the coming months. This is the most complex intersection reconfiguration that will be carried out as part of the project. This work will be scheduled to minimise disruption to traffic at this busy intersection.
