THE consultation period for the closure of Lawrence Hargrave Drive to allow essential works has been extended, State MP for Heathcote, Lee Evans has announced.
For the safety of motorists and workers, and to minimise disruption to residents, the Roads and Maritime Services intends closing the road in two stages each of four weeks, 24 hours a day.
The first four-week closure is proposed during February/March 2020 and the second during May/June 2020.
“I agree with those who have contacted me that closing the road is not acceptable, and I am working closely with the Minister’s office to explore other options,” Mr Evans said.
“This project is essential however I am working closely with Minister Constance to explore other options. I have been listening to the community and closing the road completely is just not good enough. It would have significant negative impacts on residents.”
Submissions have been extended to 5pm Friday August 30.
Mr Evans is urging residents with concerns to provide their feedback: rms.work/lhd-closure
