A SECTION of one of the busiest streets in Atherton will become a single lane from this week until early December as roadworks are undertaken as part of the Atherton Hospital Redevelopment.
Part of Louise Street – from Jack Street to Cook Street – will become a single lane one-way thoroughfare with a speed limit of 40km/h while the works are carried out which include some demolition of the existing pavement and installation of median strips and crossovers to access the new hospital from Louise St.
Up to 11 public parking spaces in front of the hospital on Louise St will be closed during this period and detour signs will be in place.
Atherton Hospital acting Director of Nursing and Midwifery Tammy Jennings thanked residents for their understanding and patience during this period, and said the roadworks were necessary to complete construction of the new hospital building
