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.

For maps and details, see the work notices: Victoria / Kilmore / Durham Street North

Coming to an end: Colombo St – Peterborough to Salisbury
On track to be finished by the end of next week, 11 April.

Durham St South
Expect delays on this southbound route south of Cashel St over the next two months. Durham St is currently down to two lanes only between Cashel and Lichfield St (over the bridge), from the week of 7 April it will be reduced to one lane around the work site progressing through to Tuam St.

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.

Humphreys Drive one way (estuary link between Linwood Ave and Main Road Sumner)
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.
