The first of six intersection upgrades will kick off at Baltrum Drive in Wollert starting next week on Jan 10, with works to upgrade the remaining intersections taking place throughout 2024 and 2025 as part of the improvements to Epping Road. 

Baltrum Drive will close in both directions between Epping Road and Matilda Avenue from Wednesday 10 January until late February so crews can safely upgrade existing lanes, kerbs, and medians, build sections of  new shared walking and cycling paths, and install drainage pipes and critical infrastructure services for new traffic lights and street lighting. 

Epping Road will remain open in both directions and access to Baltrum Drive will be maintained via Pine Park Drive.

Hayston Boulevard and Fletcher Street will also close at Epping Road from Thursday 11 January until early February so crews can safely install a new water main.

During this time, access to Hayston Boulevard and Fletcher Street will be via Brush Road or Harvest Home Road. Access to private properties and businesses will be maintained at all times.  

Drivers should plan their journeys and allow extra travel time.
