Upgrades to the Emerald Botanic Gardens Opal Street entrance are nearing the final stages, with the access road now open.
‘It may look like everything’s done and dusted there, but we’ve still got some finishing touches to go,’ council’s Acting General Manager Infrastructure and Utilities Jason Hoolihan said.
‘Further asphalt works will be carried out between 14 and 25 September, tying in with other resurfacing in the area.
‘This will be followed by some final line marking, with the project expected to be completed by mid– October.’
‘Works may disrupt traffic in the area for short periods of time, however delays will be kept to a minimum.’
‘Thanks to everyone for their patience so far. We know the delays and traffic interruptions have been frustrating, but rest assured we’re nearly there,’ Mr Hoolihan said.
The improvements include widening Opal Street and the introduction of an auxiliary turning lane to the southbound lane, improving safety to the entrance to the gardens.
