THE second stage of a CBD roundabout reconstruction is now under way with the intersection of George and Howick streets completely closed to traffic.
Barriers went up on Tuesday blocking all access to the intersection as the roundabout is replaced.
U-turn bays have been installed on all approaches to the intersection and while pedestrians will continue to have access to businesses, Bathurst Regional Council advises that there will be some impact to parking near the work site.
Over the first few weeks the upgrade will involve the removal of the median island, blisters and the eventual removal of the old roundabout.
Council says signage will be in place at key locations near the intersection advising motorists of the closure.
