Road Closures

We will make every effort to ensure disruptions to traffic, businesses, pedestrians and residents are minimised during works.


Joslin Street, Kotara

We will be implementing a half road closure to allow our upgrade of the Joslin Street Local Centre. Joslin Street will be temporarily closed to northbound traffic between the intersections of Joslin Street with Rae Crescent and Rodway Parade. The closure will commence on Monday 30th November and is expected to be in place for three weeks. During this time access to residential driveways and the Joslin Street shops may be restricted, however we will minimise this inconvenience wherever possible and communicate with residents about any temporary changes to driveway access. Please keep the street free from parked vehicles at this location during this time.

During the closure northbound traffic will be diverted via Bryson Avenue, Springfield Avenue and Rae Crescent back onto Joslin Street north of the works area. Please follow the on-site signage and directions of our team.
