Traffic Switch on High Street

Posted 1 September 2017

The light rail construction compound, currently located at the southern side of Hight Street between Botany Street and Wansey Road, will move to the northern side of High Street from Friday 8 September 2017.

The work to move the compoud will take place at night, between 8pm and 5am, and the new set-up of the construction compound is expected to be completed within two nights.

Please note that driveway access to properties 32, 34, 42, 44 & 46 High Street will be relocated to Arthur Street. Waste collection access will also be via Arthur Lane during this period.

Traffic flows will not be affected, the footpath will be maintained at all times and bus stops will remain in their current locations.

The site will remain in place for about six months, weather permitting.
