BeCa has just been informed of the impending start to extensive roadworks along Bellvista Blvd which, subject to final ULDA approval, would begin on Monday December 12th and continue through to mid February 2012.
The roadworks include the 60m third left turn lane for traffic exiting Bellvista Blvd and turning into Caloundra Rd.
Also to be included and subject to ULDA approval, is the construction of a roundabout at Bellcarra Place/Bellvista Blvd to allow residents from Berkey Place to join Caloundra Rd. They will need to turn left from Berkey Place with this proposal but travel south to the new roundabout before being able to complete a safe turn and head back up to Caloundra Rd along the newly widened Bellvista Blvd.
The photo left shows the area to be extended. The roundabout is to go in at the intersection in the photo and the left turn only lane is expected to extend 60 metres down from the intersection with Caloundra Rd. Click on the photo for a larger view.
The construction of the roundabout will also serve to slow traffic heading off Caloundra Rd and along Bellvista Blvd.
Approval from the ULDA to undertake these works is still to be given to Stockland. However a commitment Stockland made to BeCA to have most of the roadwork completed over the school holiday period means they need to start ASAP.
Surveyors may be seen on Wednesday Dec 7th near the proposed Bellcarra Place/Bellvista Blvd roundabout locating underground services!
