Richmond Roads completed lanes open to traffic

Motorists are reminded changed traffic conditions will be in place this Saturday (May 24) following the completed southbound lanes of Richmond Road between Bells Creek and Townson Road at Marsden Park.

“Work to build the new southbound lanes is complete between Bells Creek and Townson Road atMarsden Park and work will now start on the northbound lanes.

Changed traffic conditions will be in place on Richmond Road at Marsden Park from 8pm Friday (May 23) until 5am on Saturday when traffic will be moved onto the completed southbound lanes.

Motorists travelling westbound on Townson Road will be moved from the eastbound lanes onto the westbound lanes. Road users travelling eastbound will remain on the eastbound lanes.

Right turn access for properties on Richmond Road will be removed from Saturday to prepare motorists for when four lanes open to traffic in August, weather permitting.

“RMS will continue road resurfacing after the traffic switch with electronic message signs and traffic controllers in place to guide motorists,'' the spokesperson said.
