Works on the upgrade of a major Woodridge intersection are planned for today (Monday September 17).

Councillor Phil Pidgeon said the works at the intersection of Ewing Rd and Smith Rd would improve operation and efficiency of the local stormwater network and improve the safety and condition of the road for all users.

“We will be undertaking a number of works including replacing and relocating stormwater pipes, manholes, stormwater infrastructure while also reconstructing and resurfacing the pavement in and around the intersection,” he said.

Division 2 Councillor Russell Lutton said Ewing Rd was one of the busiest roads in the city and asked motorists to be patient while the works were undertaken.

“The works will take until approximately November and there will be some changed traffic conditions including reduced speed limits and temporary lane closures,” he said.

“We will also have to close a section of Ewing Rd (from Smith Rd to Henty St) for a few weeks at the start of the project with detours in place via North Rd (for westbound traffic) and Kingston Rd (for eastbound traffic).

“We apologise for the inconvenience the works may cause and ask motorists to allow some extra travel time.”
