Safety will be improved on John Rice Avenue, Elizabeth Vale with works starting to install a new pedestrian actuated crossing (PAC) facility.
The new crossing is being installed approximately 75 metres east of the intersection with Haydown Road, Elizabeth Vale.
Access to the Elizabeth Vale shopping centre will be maintained during the works.
A 25 km/h speed restriction will be in place while workers are on site. Lane and other speed restrictions may apply subject to onsite conditions
Access to the existing shopping centre car park immediately to the west of the proposed PAC will be changed to left in and left out only to assure the safety of all road users.
