Omodei calls for patience as roadworks continue

Tari JeffersManjimup-Bridgetown Times

Road users and pedestrians alike are being asked to be patient as Manjimup CBD roadworks are completed.

As part of the construction for the roundabout on South Western Highway to help funnel people into the CBD, roadworks have now started on the highway, closing down traffic flow to just one lane.

Rice and Blechynden streets between South Western Highway and Clarke and Giblett streets between Ralston Street and Graphite Road have been subject to closures.

Manjimup shire president Paul Omodei said the works were likely to be completed in June and asked people to be patient until then.

“The end justifies the means,” he said.

“One of the most important projects left is the roundabout.

“It’s going to channel people into the CBD.”

Once the roundabout is ready, it will also have signage pointing to the CBD and the Manjimup Timber and Heritage Park’s attractions, including the playground, the yet-to-be-constructed South West Energy Experience and the Sandra Donovan Sound Shell.
