Gayhurst Road bridge/ update on Avondale
Work is starting next week (28 April) on the temporary foot/cycling bridge which will be in place before the Gayhurst Road bridge is closed and demolished.

Road repairs will start at the intersection of Avondale and Breezes Roads on Monday, 28 April. Motorists heading east towards Wainoni Road will be detoured via Niven and Eglinton Streets for about four days. More work will follow.
