Additional works

As part of the project, MSF also removed 16,000 metres of vehicle barrier which was replaced by concrete barrier with integrated tunnels to accommodate the ducting and cabling, along with pre-formed anchors to accommodate the streetlighting on top of the barrier.
The signage involved the construction of 16 lit and singed gantries, and the technology element included four technology cabinets, 22 traffic loops and three marksman poles.
