Road resurfacing works will commence on Sturt Road this Friday as part of the Darlington Upgrade Project.
Laffer Drive will be temporarily closed between Sturt Road and the Flinders Drive Extension as the works are undertaken from 8pm on Friday, 5 April until 6am on Monday, 8 April.
The works will occur on the westbound lanes of Sturt Road, between Birch Crescent and Main South Road.
The following traffic management measures will be taken:
A profiler, excavator, asphalt trucks, roller, paver and lighting towers will be used throughout the works.
While some noise disturbance can be expected, the work will be managed to minimise disturbance to local residents as much as possible.
The department appreciates your patience while these important works are undertaken.
