Joslin Street, Kotara

We are implementing a half road closure to allow our upgrade of the Joslin Street Local Centre. Joslin Street will be temporarily closed to northbound traffic between the intersections of Joslin Street with Rae Crescent and Rodway Parade until late January 2021.

During the half-road closure access to residential driveways may be impeded for short periods. We will endeavour to keep access to Joslin Street shops available at all times. If there is a requirement for a temporary closure we will communicate this with residents and shop owners prior to commencement. Please keep the street free from parked vehicles at this location during this time.

We appreciate your patience during this time. Please follow the on-site signage and directions of our team.
