Upgrade of existing intersection
Kingsland Road and Abercorn Street, Bexley

Council has upgraded the intersection of Kingsland Road and Abercorn Road, Bexley.

Carruthers Drive, Sans Souci (Cook Park)
One way circuit (temporary)

Council has implemented a temporary one way circuit in Carruthers Drive, Sans Souci (Cook Park). Entry is from the southern end at Sandringham Street and heads north along the foreshore and exits out onto the Grand Parade (opposite Alice Street) where vehicles continue south.

The entrance into the car park opposite Alice Street, coming from the north has been closed off. This car park has been closed for quite a long time, and by opening the car park it has created more access to the beach for all residents. Further investigation is required to determine whether or not this project is to become permanent.
