    • Boundary Road between Denmans Camp Road and Maree Street - Whilst it was previously indicated that Boundary Road between Denmans Camp Road and Maree Street would re-open in November 2023, the closure of this section of Boundary Road is likely to be extended.  Further details in relation to the timing of the reopening of this section of Boundary Road will be provided once timing is more certain.
