 Finishing works and road works

Road users will notice construction activities on Romeo Road will continue beyond the extension opening. These works are required to create road connections for future developments north and south of Romeo Road. Intermittent lane closures and traffic management will occur along Romeo Road for the duration of these works. The ongoing works also include landscaping.

Testing and commissioning of new traffic signals along Romeo Road at Benenden Avenue will continue, with traffic signals operating under temporary configurations until the commissioning process is concluded.
