Two-Way Access Near 7-Eleven Heathwood Approved

The corner of Stapylton Road and Wadeville Street in Heathwood will be busy with construction work soon as Council has approved plans to build the needed two-way access near the 7-Eleven site. 

Residents are advised to expect some impact on the traffic flow in the area once road works and stormwater drainage preparation get underway. The Council, however, will still announce the start date of construction following the approval of the development application on 13 Nov 2020 (DA A005554097). 

This Heathwood corner has a shopping centre as well, which has seen traffic problems since its establishment in 2014. Drivers that come in and out of the complex apparently ignore the traffic signs.

“Stapylton Rd wasn’t upgraded to its current level when the shopping centre was originally built,” according to Councillor Angela Owen on Facebook. The two-way access work was also not part of the $18 million Stapylton Road upgrade works in December 2015.   

Ms Owen also said that the Council is working with the police to address the issue of erring drivers that visit the shopping site.
