    What is happening?

    There will be significant changes to traffic movements at the intersection commencing this Wednesday, 20 May.

    The barriers will be relocated along Suttor Street, which will align traffic flow with Lambert Street. This will allow for works to occur near the tennis courts and on the western corner of Lambert and Mitre Streets heading towards Hill Street.

    A total closure of the entrance of Coral Way near Suttor Street will take place. All traffic to and from Coral Way and adjoining streets will need to detour via Mitre and Esrom Streets.

    The carpark near the Scout Hall will remain open for access to the shops.

    The Suttor, Mitre and Lambert Street intersection will remain open under traffic control, however delays are to be expected to the flow of traffic with the speed limit reduced to 40km while the works are underway.

    A radio campaign is continuing to run on local radio to remind the community that businesses adjacent to the intersection remain open. For the latest project information visit the Bathurst YourSay website or if you prefer to talk to someone, please call 6333 6100.

    From Monday 27 April to Friday 1 May, Telstra will excavate the ground to construct a concrete slab to protect underground cable which will close vehicle access on the western corner of Lambert and Mitre Sts heading towards Hill Street.

    It is envisaged to reinstate traffic at the end of each shift through the placement steel plates over the open excavation. In the event that traffic cannot be reinstated due to exiting service issues, detours will be in place for the duration of works.

    All other traffic movements between Mitre, Suttor and Lambert Streets will be enabled under traffic controlled conditions. Pedestrians will need to deviate locally around the work site per pedestrian routes delineated by barrier fencing.

    Watch a video of the works with a project overview

    Council is continuing work on a range of infrastructure projects including the Suttor, Mitre, Lambert Street roundabout. The crews working on site are practising appropriate social distancing measures.


    Work has commenced with the installation of the larger water mains. This work will be conducted in stages and will see access to parts of the intersection limited while the mains are laid underneath the road.

    Part of the intersection will be closed next week for 450mm water main renewal across Mitre to Lambert Street. The closure will only be during working hours, typically 7.00am to 5.00pm from Monday, 20 April to Friday 24 April.

    Traffic control measures including VMS boards will be in place. Please follow directions of staff on site.

    • A detour route will be in place for right turn movements out of Lambert into Mitre and
    • A detour route for straight through path from Mitre to Hill St

    Access to the shops will be unaffected, although customers approaching from Lambert Street will need to negotiate signposted detours to access the carpark in front of the scout hall.


    Telstra crews were on site installing telecommunications cabling at the front of the shops. This is expected to be completed this week. Demolition works will then commence to clear the area in front of the shops for new kerb and gutter and road formation.


    The carpark next to the shops has been sealed and is now open to the public.


    Council is asking that motorists allow for possible delays when travelling through the intersection. The project will take up to 9 months to complete and any wet weather may push back the completion date.


    A radio campaign is continuing to run on local radio to remind the community that businesses adjacent to the intersection remain open. For the latest project information visit the Bathurst YourSay website or if you prefer to talk to someone, please call 6333 6100.

    On completion of service relocation works, pavement works will commence on the new tennis court carpark, the Suttor Street approach and the northern side of Mitre Street.

    As these works are undertaken, access to the carpark next to the shops will be restricted. The carpark next to the Scout Hall will remain open for use.

    The local shops will be open throughout the works. Pedestrian access will be available at all times.

    Council is asking that motorists allow for possible delays when travelling through the intersection. There will be changes to traffic, parking, school drop off and bus zones. The intersection will be under traffic control and the speed limit will be reduced to 40km per hour.

    For those returning back to school, particularly at Assumption, it is important to take notice of the changes to parking areas and to allow for additional time for the school drop off and pick up while the works continue.

    The project will take up to 9 months to complete and any wet weather may push back the completion date.
