DPTI Media Alert - O-Bahn Works: Hackney Road First Creek Construction

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

10 August 2016

The works will require the use of a 200 tonne crane to install a concrete pre-cast retaining wall along the creek alignment, and will include excavation of a section of Hackney Road.

During the works, southbound traffic will be restricted to one lane between Botanic Road and Botanic Street.  Both northbound lanes will remain operational under speed restriction.  The priority centralised bus lane will remain operational.

Local area access will be maintained for residents and businesses along the eastern side of Hackney Road.

Motorists and road users are requested to take extra care when workers are on site and observe traffic signage and speed and lane restrictions when travelling through the area.
