A significant infrastructure upgrade will soon commence on Terry Road, Box Hill to create a more resilient and accessible route for residents and commuters after years of persistent flooding.

Terry Road will be closed between Monmouth Drive and Hedgewood Drive from Tuesday, 2 April 2024 to raise the road’s surface and increase drainage capacity under the road. Works are anticipated to take between six – nine months to complete.

General Manager of The Hills Shire Council Michael Edgar said this upgrade was necessary after years of road closures on this troublesome stretch of road.

“Over the past six years, Terry Road has been closed twelve times due to flooding,” Mr Edgar said.

“We understand that this closure will be frustrating, however the ongoing works will make the road safer and significantly reduce the risk of vehicles getting stuck in floodwaters.

“The upgrade will also equip Terry Road to support our expanding Box Hill community and the growing number of people using this road, as well as the traffic expected from users of Brindle Parkway Reserve once it has been constructed.

“We ask residents and commuters to drive to the conditions of the road closure and thank them for their patience.”

During the closure, detours will be in place for light and heavy vehicles. Light vehicles and buses will be detoured via Brindle Parkway and heavy vehicles will be detoured via Mason Road and Old Pitt Town Road.

Construction progress is highly dependent on wet weather, as this work is being carried out in an area already prone to flooding.
