    Please note that once the works in Boundary Road between Denmans Camp Road and Maree Street have been completed, Boundary Road will be re-opened to two-way traffic.

    In addition to the above changed traffic conditions, to allow for the final asphalt resurfacing of Grevillea Street, Grevillea Street at the Boundary Road intersection will be fully closed for a period of approximately five (5) days during the June/July school holidays.
