Re­aligned road open to traf­fic

Hills Gazette - - NEWS -

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.
