    Traffic changes including a slow lane closure and speed reduction will be in place at the M2 to Pennant Hills Road exit and on Pennant Hills Road to the Karloon Road intersection (northbound) on Saturday 13 August, from 9.30pm to 5am, weather permitting.

    Overhead variable messages and traffic control signs will alert road users of all changes to traffic conditions in the area.
