What's happening

 Re-opening of Link Road connection to South Coast Highway; permanent closure of Link Road and Lancaster Road intersection

Connectivity between Link Road and South Coast Highway will be reinstated on 9 February 2023. We thank local residents and road users for their patience and support while this closure and associated detour have been in place.

Once Link Road has re-opened at South Coast Highway, the intersection of Link Road and Lancaster Road will permanently close from 13 February 2023. As the Albany Ring Road alignment runs directly to the east of Link Road, maintaining connectivity in this location is not feasible. Please see our recent Lancaster Road permanent closure information sheet for further details and alternative routes.

 Temporary road layout at Hanrahan Road / Frenchman Bay Road

From Wednesday 25 January until the new interchange is operational in 2024, access between Lower Denmark Road and Princess Royal Drive / Hanrahan Road for all road users will be via a loop along Frenchman Bay Road and Woolstores Place.

A sealed shoulder will be provided for cyclists and pedestrians and a speed reduced to 40km/h through the works. Please drive with care and be aware of the modified road layout.

 Temporary traffic changes on South Coast Highway - from 22 January 2023

From Sunday 22 January until the new Albany Ring Road / South Coast Highway interchange is operational in 2024 all traffic along South Coast Highway adjacent to the intersection of Link Road will be diverted to a temporary alignment immediately north of the existing highway. A speed reduced to 40 km/h will be in place through the works area. Please drive with care and be aware of the changed road layout.

 Amended hours of operation for bridge construction sites at South Coast Highway and Hanrahan Road / Frenchman Bay Road

To allow for the construction of the major interchanges at South Coast Highway and at Hanrahan Road / Frenchman Bay Road, the hours of operation for the bridge construction sites have been amended as following:

  • Monday to Sunday, 7am to 7pm
  • Public Holidays, 7am to 7pm

The construction of the bridges also require several significant concrete pours involving extended work hours at night to allow for the preparation, pouring, finishing and cooling of the concrete.

To allow for these works, additional night works will take place between 7pm to 7am. Between December 2022 and May 2023, 6 concrete pours will take place at the Hanrahan Road / Frenchman Bay Road bridge and 2 at the South Coast Highway bridge. Nearby residents will be notified in advance.
