SCIRT traffic update for week starting 7 April, 2014 and weekend 4-7 April

Central city
Montreal/ Victoria St: Montreal one lane north from 7 April
SCIRT work in the Montreal/Victoria/ Salisbury intersection, at the Clock Tower, will create significant delays for the next month.

• Both Montreal Street and Salisbury Street will be reduced to one lane at this intersection.

• Drivers need to allow extra time, especially at peak times or find an alternate northbound route like Fitzgerald Ave.

• Victoria Street will be closed at the Clock Tower, with access to Victoria St between Salisbury and Kilmore Streets via Peterborough St.

• This is some of the final wastewater connections in this part of the central city, started 15 months ago by SCIRT’s Fletcher team. Thanks to everyone who has made the effort and continues to make the effort to get to their local retailers/ cafes.

Outside the Four Avenues
One-way for McCormacks Bay
McCormacks Bay Road will be one-way, for east bound traffic only (towards Redcliffs) from Monday, 7 April for about a year. This one-way system will be in place as two SCIRT Fulton Hogan crews start on separate wastewater pipes at either end of this road with more crews coming on stream at different stages.
Local businesses/ Mt Pleasant Farmers Market
On Saturday mornings, the work site will be minimised as much as possible for the Mt Pleasant Farmers Market. The temporary parking set up on the McCormacks Bay Reserve for the causeway work will be available for market goers. Access to the Soleares Ave shops will be via the one-way system on McCormacks Bay Road.

Read the work notice and check the maps for time frames.

From Monday, 7 April, Humphreys Drive, the alternate route to Ferry Road to Sumner via the Ferrymead bridge, will be one-way only – west or citybound – for a month. East or bridge-bound traffic will be detoured at Dyers Road onto Ferry Road.

SCIRT’s City Care team is starting full road reconstruction on Humphreys Drive and Linwood Ave (between Ferry and Dyers Roads) for a month. They are also doing kerb and channel and footpath repairs on Ferry Road. Please take care and slow down on these main routes to and from the Ferrymead bridge.

Brougham St at Waltham Road intersection/ Brisbane closed for weekend
This weekend from 6 pm Friday 4 April to 6 am Monday 7 April Brougham St, Sydenham, will be down to one lane eastbound between Brisbane St and Waltham Road. A section of storm water pipe on Brougham Street between Brisbane and Gasson Streets will be repaired, so Brisbane St will be closed.

Gordon Campbell:
On First Time Voting (Centre Right)

For the next two days, I’m turning my column over to two guest columnists who are first time voters. I’ve asked them to explain why they were voting, for whom and what role they thought their parental upbringing had played in shaping their political beliefs ; and at the end, to choose a piece of music.

One guest columnist will be from the centre right, one from the centre left. Today’s column is from the centre right – by James Penn:

As someone who likes to consider himself, in admittedly vainglorious fashion, a considered and rational actor, the act of voting for the first time is a somewhat confusing one. I know that my vote has a close to zero chance of actually influencing the outcome of Parliament. The chance I will cast the marginal vote that adds to National or Act’s number of seats in Parliament is miniscule. The chance, even if I did, that doing so would affect the government makes voting on a strictly practical level even more spurious as a worthwhile exercise.

But somehow I have spent a large amount of time (perhaps detrimentally so, depending on the outcome of my upcoming exams) agonising over how to cast my first vote in a national election. More>>
