MOTORISTS are having to navigate more intersection closures this month as part of the Marmion Avenue dual carriageway project.

Following news the Lagoon Drive intersection in Yanchep would close for a month, the City of Wanneroo announced the junction at Brindabella Parkway in Alkimos would also close until February 21.

Community News understands the closure is to build a temporary roundabout to divert traffic when another intersection closure starts at the Graceful Boulevard.

That closure is expected to last about six weeks while the intersection is converted from a roundabout to one with traffic signals.

The City advised people to follow signs and Alkimos Beach Progress Association urged residents to allow extra travel time.

The project to widen the road from Butler to Yanchep is expected to finish in April.

The Marmion Avenue-Graceful Boulevard roundabout will be replaced with traffic signals.
