Major upgrades on roads in George will impact on road users for the next few months, starting May 2018.
Project 1: Courtenay Road
Description: Upgrade/rehabilitation of Courtenay Road from the railway bridge to York Street Circle. Phase One comprises work on the outer lanes in both directions, followed by (Phase Two) a new wearing course placed over all four lanes.
Project period: Early May 2018 – end July 2018
Traffic impact: Section of one lane (about 100m at a time) closed at night 6pm-6am. Minimal impact during the day.
