    Drysdale Bypass Update

    Drysdale Bypass update - closure of Gilles & Andersons Rd intersection from 30 March

    The bypass is really starting to take shape and we are making changes to the local road network in readiness for when the bypass is completed and opened later this year. 

    The next phase of works involves building the Bypass entry and exit points at Gillies Road. This means we’ll need to temporarily close Gillies Road at the intersection of Andersons Road, at the north side of the Bypass. 

    Key dates and information 

    Gillies Road will close on the northern side of the Bypass, where it intersects with Andersons Road from Monday, 30 March 2020, until the Bypass opens later this year. 

    When Gillies Road re-opens, traffic will be able to turn left into Gillies Road from the bypass and left out of Gillies onto the Bypass. 

    Gillies Road residents will continue to have access to Gillies Road via Basin Road during the closure. 

    Parents and carers who use Gillies Road as a pickup or drop off area for the schools, sports oval or Gate 3 are encouraged to use the new pedestrian underpass on Andersons Road or other drop off locations as shown in map attached below. 

    Please note the pedestrian underpass is still under construction, so we ask that you take care when moving through it and please observe all safety signage and directions provided by our construction partner’s team.
