Stockland has advised BeCA that traffic control around both sets of roadworks should be lessened substantially after today. It is expected that asphalting works will be completed later today allowing 2 way traffic along Bellvista Blvd. The 40 kph speed restriction will remain as the area is still a road construction zone. Line markings are still be completed so driver care will need to be exercised.
Roadworks have come a long way since the photo (left) was taken.
Despite being earlier then the predicted 9:45 am recommencement of stop/go traffic through the new roundabout, traffic was again delayed soon after 9 am this morning to allow the asphalting works to get underway and completed as soon as possible.
Residents should have a better idea of how Bellvista Blvd will work in the next few days. BeCA is keen to see how traffic movement is substantially improved with the introduction of the designated left turn lane especially during school pick up times.
Bellvista Blvd/Bellcarra Pl roundabout construction works are due to be completed 24th Feb and all remaining construction works to be completed 29th Feb. Landscaping work will continue beyond these dates.
Late Update: Unfortunately heavy rain this afternoon has caused asphalting at the new Bellvista Blvd/Bellcarra Place roundabout to be abandoned for the rest of the day with still around 50% of the roundabout to be completed. The heavy rain has caused potholes to form in some of the uncovered road surface. Temporary repairs are to be carried out late today to prevent damage to cars and the work will be completed first thing Thursday as long as the weather permits. We are nearly there!
