A reminder that works are due to begin next week, weather permitting, to improve the crossing located at the Lincoln and Franklin Street intersection in Lindisfarne.

It is expected that the works will take approximately 10 weeks to complete.

They will include the installation of a ‘wombat crossing’, footpath upgrade on either side of the crossing, removal of the existing pedestrian island, minor service relocations and upgraded street lighting.

During construction, traffic management will be in place for a single lane closure. Local traffic and footpath access will be maintained throughout the construction period, and pedestrian and road detours will be in place.

Cars travelling eastbound (toward the East Derwent Highway) will be detoured up Wellington Road, and Franklin Street will remain open to cars travelling from either direction.

We ask road users, pedestrians and cyclists to please observe signage and take extra care when travelling near the area.
