Work to start this Monday on Calala Lane intersection upgrade

Work will start on upgrading one of the busiest intersections in town from Monday 31 May, as a new roundabout will be at the intersection of Calala Lane and Campbell Road.

Both lanes of Calala Lane will remain open during peak traffic periods while construction takes place over the next four months, with the updated construction program from the contractor indicates completion in approximately late September 2021. There may be occasions as construction progresses where Calala Lane will be reduced to one lane. These will be kept to a minimum where possible and be scheduled outside of morning and afternoon peak traffic periods.

A small section of Campbell Road will be one way for parts of construction, with traffic to be diverted via Osprey Way. The section of Campbell Road from Calala Lane to McDonald Crescent will be reduced to one lane during parts of construction. The speed limit will be reduced to 40km/h on-site.

Access to the nearby shopping centre will be maintained at all times. The school crossing and bus stops impacted by construction will be temporarily moved to a safe and nearby distance from the construction site. These changes are as follows, which will be clearly signed on-site:

  • The school crossing of Calala Lane between Campbell Road and Boronia Avenue will be temporarily relocated outside of the construction site, and will remain supervised during peak school periods.

  • The bus stop on Calala Lane located in front of Calala Inn will be temporarily relocated closer to Osprey Way.

  • Pedestrians crossing Campbell Road will be safely diverted around the construction site as required.
