Construction of the heavy vehicle bypass road

Fri., 18 September, 2020

Currently, heavy vehicles are able to enter the Precinct via two routes:

  • Regency Road onto Pedder Crescent, under Regency Road and continuing along Pedder Crescent.
  • South Road onto Pym Street and then various side streets.

As part of the R2P Project, access changes to local roads in August 2020, included the removal of right turns and through traffic at Pym Street.

Heavy vehicle traffic is encouraged to enter the Precinct via Regency Road.

The existing Pedder Crescent will be widened on the southern side of Regency Road. To assist heavy vehicle access, a bypass road will be constructed adjacent the existing railway line to connect Pedder Crescent and Exeter Terrace at the Oxenham Street junction.

The bypass road will provide an alternative access route for heavy vehicles travelling to the Precinct, providing direct connections to Regency Road without the need to travel through residential areas. The bypass road will be suitable for B-double vehicles (equal or less than 26 metres long) at all times, and A-double vehicles (equal or less than 36.5 metres long) under permit.
