About the project
The City is installing measures to protect turtles and other wildlife on Maltby Road East. This work includes the installation of a wildlife crossing and wildlife exclusion fencing to facilitate turtle movement under the road and prevent turtles from accessing the road.
Signs on Maltby Road
Signage has been posted to notify motorists of turtle movement in the area, and a road closure for the month of May is planned. Signage will remain in place until construction of the wildlife crossing and wildlife exclusion fencing is complete.
Full road closure begins May 2023
Maltby Road East between Gordon Street and Victoria Road South will be closed to traffic from May 1 to May 31, 2023 to prevent turtle mortality during their most active period.
Traffic will be redirected along Gordon Street, Clair Road East and Victoria Road South.
Construction begins August 2023
Maltby Road East between Gordon Street and Victoria Road South will be closed to traffic during construction of the wildlife crossing and wildlife exclusion fencing. Construction is expected to begin in August 2023 when water levels have decreased. Please refer to the map for additional details.
Property and business access
Local access to businesses and property driveways will be maintained during the road closures using Gordon Street or Victoria Road South.
City services will continue to operate on schedule; however, some delays can be expected.
