Johnston Street Intersections to Undergo Upgrades

The City will be conducting civil and road works along Johnston Street at the Maxwell and Kingsmill intersections from 23 October to 15 December.

The Johnston and Maxwell Street intersection will see the installation of a roundabout to improve the safety for drivers and pedestrians who use this high-traffic junction, as well improve traffic flow.

Further works including asphalting and kerbing will continue to the Johnston and Kingsmill intersections.

A temporary road closure will be in place during this time. Please follow the indicated traffic signage and directions from traffic controllers. Also allow additional time for travelling and seeking alternative routes.

To assist with traffic flow, an intersection will be constructed with splitter islands to increase the safety and visibility of the new intersection conditions. 

Pram ramps will be added to existing pedestrian crossings to improve accessibility for pedestrians. 

Wide concrete and asphalt paths will be installed for pedestrian access also.
