Project Scope

  • Demolition of existing roundabout island and replacement with a temporary roundabout
  • Installation of new traffic signals with controlled pedestrian/cycle crossing lanterns
  • Construction of slip lanes and median strips
  • Installation of bicycle lanes, kerb ramps and pavements
  • Installation of 145m of drainage lines
  • All associated lane and other line markings


  • The intersection is a major traffic thoroughfare in peak hour
  • A popular city-to-suburbs cycle route passes directly through the intersection
  • Pedestrian access to two schools in the vicinity had to be maintained
  • The original staging plan required significant night-works, including high-noise works, near residential homes
  • Noise restrictions were tightened after contract
  • Historic concrete tram tracks were discovered below Days Rd during initial project stages


  • Pensar’s experience enabled early identification of alternative staging to minimise disruption – this approach was accepted by Council
  • To reduce noise impact, the team scheduled weekend works, and implemented traffic detours so major works could be completed in daylight hours
  • Works and traffic access were re-planned around historical tram tracks
  • Asphalt and drainage works were completed ahead of schedule –reducing overall disruption
  • The project was completed ahead of plan
