Lyell Highway temporary closure

A SECTION of the Lyell Highway between Pioneer Avenue and Hillside Crescent in New Norfolk will be closed to general traffic for two days to allow for essential maintenance works. These works will improve the condition and safety of the road and have involved milling the road surface, including the roundabout, to be followed by road sealing.

Part of the Lyell Highway (also called Montagu Crescent in this section), will be closed between Pioneer Avenue and Hillside Crescent from:

• 7am–5pm, Wednesday, January 7, and Thursday, January 8

Shane Gregory from the Department of State Growth said detours would be in place during these hours, and the road will be re-opened to traffic after 5pm.

"The works have been scheduled to minimise length of closure and potential disruption for residents and local businesses," Mr Gregory said. "Residential and pedestrian access along the footpath will be maintained, however residential traffic will be affected for a maximum of 30 minutes while sealing occurs, and we ask for people’s patience during this time," he said.

The $190,000 project started today and has been funded by the State Government. During the works period most traffic including heavy vehicles is being diverted via Pioneer Avenue.
