Island Heritage Roundabout

Motorists using the Island Heritage Roundabout on the Esterley Tibbetts Highway will not be able make a full circle around the roundabout this week, as upgrading work on the site continues.

The inner lane of the roundabout has been closed for several weeks and paving work on it will get under way this week, the National Roads Authority announced.

The outer lane of the roundabout will be restricted to vehicles travelling south or north; traffic will no longer be able to travel the entire way around the roundabout and go back in the original direction of travel.

The lane restriction will be in place until Sunday, 25 Aug.

“Drivers are asked to keep watch for traffic diversions and to drive with caution to ensure their safety and that of the work crews,” a statement from the NRA read.
