Bayshore Drive Roundabout

  • Completion Date - 2018
  • Value - $4.2 Million
  • Client - Byron Shire Council

The Bayshore Drive Roundabout project involved the construction of a new gateway roundabout at the intersection of Bayshore Drive and Ewingsdale Road - the main entrance to Byron Bay.

SEE Civil was appointed by the Byron Shire Council to construct the roundabout under live traffic. Funding for the project was provided to the council through the Building Better Regions Fund - a federal government grants program.

The roundabout was designed to improve the traffic flow through one of Byron Bay's busiest intersections and provide improved access to the growing Arts & Industrial Estate.

The project involved complex traffic management and staging and major asset relocations including water mains and overhead powerlines.

SEE Civil also self-performed all asphalt and flexible pavement works for the roundabout.
