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.
