Out of Hours Notice - Northbourne Avenue/Macarthur Avenue Intersection, 31 May to 3 June

New pavement and drainage related works is required, ahead of rail installation, on Northbourne Avenue at the Macarthur Avenue intersection. This includes:

  • Storm water drainage installation
  • Road surface and kerb upgrade
  • Boring works to locate utilities
  • Traffic signal relocation


The hours of work will be from 10:00pm to 4:00am, Thursday 31 May to Sunday 3 June.

Traffic Management:
The left-turn slip lane will be closed for motorists entering Northbourne Avenue from Macarthur Avenue. However, traffic can still turn left with care.

Traffic management will be in place and highly visible throughout the works, including signage and personnel.

Additional Information:
The equipment that will be used includes: excavators, an hydrovac truck, a compactor and other construction vehicles ranging from light vehicles to trucks.

Due to the nature of the work, some of the activities will be noisy. The project team will limit noise impacts wherever possible by reducing the number of machines operating at the same time and turning off equipment when not in use. Non-tonal reversing beepers will be used* and workers will be instructed to keep noise to a minimum. 

Thank you for your patience during these important works.
