St Asaph St and Montreal St
St Asaph St is still reduced to one lane at the Montreal St intersection. Two lanes of traffic flow will be maintained on Montreal St, with speed restrictions in place.

The approaches to the Anzac Dr/Bexley Rd roundabout will be reduced to one lane on Tuesday and Wednesday next week while road sealing work takes place.

Wilsons Road – Waltham
Wilsons Rd, between Centaurus Rd roundabout and Koromiko St, has reopened to two-way traffic. Thank you for your patience.

Thanks
Thank you to everyone for being patient as SCIRT crews make progress city-wide, and to everyone who continues to go the extra mile to support their local businesses.
