We’re upgrading Plenty Road between McKimmies Road and Bridge Inn Road to help you get home safer and sooner.

Update

April 2021

Over the coming months, we’re continuing major works as we build the new lanes and intersections on Plenty Road between Bush Boulevard and Bridge Inn Road.

Since our last major update, we’ve:

  • laid 3,250 tonnes of asphalt at night covering 3.6km of road between McDonalds Road and Riverdale Boulevard
  • installed new street lighting between McDonalds Road and The Lakes Boulevard
  • installed permanent concrete barriers in the median near the Plenty Road and McDonalds Road intersection
  • started to relocate gas services at The Lakes Boulevard and Bridge Inn Road.

What we’re doing this month:

Between Bush Boulevard and The Lakes Boulevard we’ll:

  • continue to build a new northbound slip lane from McDonalds Road onto Plenty Road
  • build a new southbound lane between Stagecoach Boulevard and Gordons Road east
  • upgrade the intersection at Gordons Road east.

Between The Lakes Boulevard and Bridge Inn Road we’ll:

  • complete the intersection upgrade at Waterview Drive
  • relocate gas services at The Lakes Boulevard and Riverdale Boulevard
  • build new lanes and the median between The Lakes Boulevard and Bridge Inn Road
  • continue working on the new Bridge Inn Road intersection, relocating utility services and building new pavement.

These works will involve:

  • moving traffic barriers and installing safety barriers
  • digging and removing soil
  • relocating underground services including water, electricity, gas and telecommunications
  • stormwater drainage works
  • concrete kerb and channelling works
  • removing old asphalt and laying new asphalt
  • installing street lighting
  • line marking.

Most of our works will take place between 7am and 6pm, Monday to Friday and 7am to 5pm, Saturdays.

The timing of these works may change depending on weather and ground conditions. At times we’ll need to work at night to reduce the impact to traffic during peak periods. When night works need to happen, we’ll let you know in advance.

There are various changes to the way you move through the area so that we can keep traffic moving safely while we work.
