Notification of works: changes to Balaclava Road entrance to the University

Works to make changes to the Balaclava Road entrance to Macquarie University will commence on Monday 27 June. Please take note of the changes below and how they might impact you entering and moving around the campus.

Summary of changes
  • Conversion of the current one-way section of Balaclava Road to two-way. This change will be between University Avenue and Eucalyptus Street (entry in to BaptistCare).
  • The footpath on the north side of Balaclava Road will be converted into a shared path (pedestrians / bicycles).
  • An additional pedestrian crossing and relocated pedestrian crossings.
  • New road pavement, lighting, signage and line marking.
  • Permanent relocation of the bus stop currently located on University Avenue (near Hadenfeld Ave intersection) to Balaclava Road coming onto campus (situated opposite the current outgoing bus stop).
Further details

This work will be conducted in stages and will mean that during construction pedestrian pathways will be redirected with signage. Minor traffic delays and increased noise can also be expected during this time.

The bus stop within the works area will be temporarily relocated nearby to allow construction works to proceed. Directional signage will be provided for bus passengers.

The Property team kindly asks that you abide by the directions of traffic management staff and signage. Please be alert to construction workers, heavy machinery and hot products during the construction process.

Please ensure that children in your care stay well clear of the work.
