Realigned road open to traffic
THE realigned Dundas Road in Forrestfield is now open to traffic.
The road now diverts around the site of the future Forrestfield train station, making it the first section of the new station precinct to open to the public.
It also means the construction site is no longer divided by Dundas Road, making it safer for workers and motorists. Traffic can now flow freely without being interrupted by crossing construction vehicles.
The existing Dundas Road is now closed south of Maida Vale Road and north of Imperial Street.
The road realignment will allow backfilling of the 300m-long retaining wall for Forrestfield station to continue. The wall is almost complete, with 89 of the 93 panels in place.
