Temporary traffic signals are in place on Somme Parade between Cumbrae Place and Roberts Avenue while repairs are carried out on the dropout which happened during the June 2015 weather event. Works are expected to be completed by the end of June 2017. We thank motorists for their patience at the traffic lights and remind people to take care when travelling through worksites.
