21 September 2007
The following roads works are scheduled to be undertaken during the week of Monday 24 to Friday 28 September as part of the programme of works preparing the track for the Hamilton 400 V8 Supercars street race to be held in Hamilton 18–20 April 2008.
Tristram Street/Rostrevor Street
Installation of a large removable centre island– traffic may experience some delays.
Tristram Street/Willoughby Street
Installation of small removable centre islands– traffic may experience some minor delays.
Lake Road/King Street
The roundabout is being removed, the road reshaped (chicane shape), realignment of underground services and the installation of a removable roundabout. Although the traffic management plan is working well as work continues – traffic should expect at times significant delays and should avoid the intersection where possible.
Pit lane – The construction of pit lane is a major project. Completion is expected to be in January 2008. Preparation earthworks are progressing well. Pit lane is being constructed off the carriageway and a safety barrier has been put in place at the roadside. As it is a worksite the footpath has been removed and the area is no longer accessible to the public.
Seddon Road (south – CBD side)/Mill Street will be closed to traffic on Monday to Thursday.
