Main Road Redcliffs reopens this afternoon

Main Road Redcliffs reopens this afternoon, 25 July, 3 pm

Amidst the sea of orange road cones that line the drive to and from Sumner, some welcome news today, from about 3 pm: Main Road will reopen between McCormacks Bay Road and the Redcliffs shops, removing the detours off Celia St and Beachville Road.

The full road closure on Main Road and detours onto the side streets began just over three weeks ago. The road was already narrow due to containers lining the cliff face, hence the need for the full road closure to get the pipe in the ground.

SCIRT has major works underway in the seaside suburbs to repair earthquake-damaged wastewater and storm water networks, followed by repairs to damaged sections of the road surface. The Redcliffs and McCormacks Bay/ Mt Pleasant catchments are expected to take around 18 months to complete.

The causeway and Coastal Pathway section of the causeway was completed last year, with the road reopening in November.

“It is great to see this part of Main Road opening today, especially for the residents living on the detour routes, Celia St and Beachville Road. The amount of traffic through their streets will reduce noticeably,” said SCIRT general manager Duncan Gibb.

“It is also encouraging to know that 90 per cent of the pressure wastewater pipe has been installed in McCormacks Bay Road, and the remainder should be in the ground by mid-August. Work will then continue on the earthquake-damaged gravity wastewater main.”
