What's Happening

OCTOBER & NOVEMBER WORKS UPDATE

It is planned to have all track work completed on Dawson Street during this period. To achieve this the northern end of Dawson Street will need to be closed to traffic for a number of weeks in October. During the road closure period all traffic will exit from Dawson Street onto Molesworth Street. Vehicular access from Dawson Street onto Duke Street will also need to be suspended for a period of time to lay track work across the junction.

The civil and footway works for the new southbound tram stop platform are nearing completion and the Contractor will soon commence works on the northbound tram stop platform.

Bus stops on Dawson Street are to be relocated south of the junction with Anne Street South to accommodate the above track and tram stop platform works.

Footway work sites are also planned for along Dawson Street with pedestrian access to premises to be maintained during business hours.

A series of carriageway works will also be required Dawson Street to upgrade road drainage network, lay ducting and strengthen road pavement where required.

All works are to be phased to minimise impacts on pedestrian and vehicular access to the area.
