FRA Maintenance Works Manager Aram Goes said they will be removing the pedestrian kerb blisters to ease congestion, with work already well underway.

GOES: “Some of the other works will include the relocation and upgrading of the pedestrian lighting posts, installation of the required signs and additional line marking.”

“In order to achieve the most effective results, business owners are advised this section of road will be a “Clear Way” from 7-10am and 3-6pm.”

GOES: “For safety reasons the general public is strongly advised to keep away from the working areas.”

The work is programmed to take approximately two weeks.
