Temporary road closure now in place

Addison Street, Shellharbour is now temporarily closed to allow for construction works of Harbour Boulevard.

Addison Street, at the intersection with Shellharbour Road, is now closed to enable the next phase of Harbour Boulevard construction. Interim traffic arrangements are in place with access to Shellharbour Village via Mary Street. We expect this section of Addison Street to be closed for approximately 2 months.

The increased traffic volumes on Mary Street are causing some additional congestion in this area as we expected. We have worked closely with Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) who control the Mary Street / Shellharbour Road intersection. RMS have made the necessary modifications to phasing of traffic lights at this intersection so that traffic flow in and out of Shellharbour Village is optimised, particularly during the morning and afternoon peaks. RMS will continue to monitor the intersection performance on a daily basis and will make further improvements to the traffic light phasing as required.

We appreciate your patience whilst Addison Street is closed and look forward opening the new Harbour Boulevard entrance to The Waterfront, Shell Cove.
