Road Users

The speed limit on SH58, near to the interchange with SH2 has been reduced to 50km/h and this will remain in force until July 2017. This speed restriction allows the team to safely work behind the barriers alongside the road, and below the road in McDougall Grove.

The road width has been reduced slightly in this area, so please take extra care and give cyclists a wide berth when passing them.

We will shortly start replacing the kerbing to SH2. The road surface will be replaced in the spring once the temperature warms up. Due to this type of asphalt’s composition it is not able to be laid during colder weather.

Manor Park Station pedestrian bridge

The lighting, stairs and ramp directly to Golf Road will be completed over the coming weeks. We will then vacate this area. We have also commenced reinstatement of the old school land.

McDougall Grove

This area is nearly complete, with final sealing to happen as soon as the area is dry.

Park and Ride, McDougall Grove:

This will be open in late July.

Cycle ways

The southbound cycle way has opened and being well used by early morning cyclists. The northbound lane will be open in July. This is to allow the team to complete other parts of the project adjacent to this cycle way.


We are about half-way through the planting of 120,000 plants. With help from the extensive mulching (unfortunately a bit smelly), the plants should have a great start and will quickly grow.

Noise wall

The noise wall adjacent to properties near Annabell Grove will be built over the coming weeks.

Approach from SH58

This is on track to be completed in July.

Upcoming works

Continued construction of:

  • Northbound cycle way and underpasses
  • Pedestrian bridge ramps and stairs from Manor Park station to the new Park and Ride car park
