Further University Avenue access changes

Following observation and feedback regarding the University Avenue Reconstruction works, it has been decided in the interest of safety to close the east-bound section of University Ave from the western roundabout to Australian Hearing Hub/Cochlear/Gumnut driveways for the duration of the works.

This means that from Wednesday 25 June University Avenue will be closed to all east-bound traffic (heading towards Herring Road) from the Balaclava Road/Macquarie Drive roundabout to Eastern Road, as pictured below.

Traffic flow 18th June (3)

The closure will remove the confusion that some motorists are having at the roundabout by diverting ALL east-bound traffic to Macquarie Drive. It will also prevent vehicles from driving down University Ave the wrong way after hours.

We understand the ‘one-way’ route (east-bound on Macquarie Drive and west-bound on University Ave) may not be convenient for some people; however, keeping traffic moving in one direction only for the duration of the works will create a significantly safer environment for all road users and pedestrians. We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation.
