• 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.
