CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

11 January 2017

As part of the O-Bahn City Access Project, the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that both lanes on the western (Botanic Gardens) side of the Hackney Bridge will be temporarily closed from 7pm Friday 13 January to 2pm Sunday 15 January 2017.

North bound traffic will be detoured onto the eastern side of Hackney Bridge during the works, with one lane in each direction.

These works will be completed prior to the Tour Down Under ‘People’s Choice Classic’ which commences  at 7:15pm on Sunday 15 January 2017.

Some noise can be expected while works are completed, however every effort will be made to minimise disturbance to local residents as much as possible.

Speed and lane restrictions will be in place in the vicinity of the works. Restrictions already in place at the intersection of Hackney Road and Botanic Road will remain.

Signage and traffic management will be in place to advise motorists of the changed traffic conditions. Road users are requested to take extra care when workers are in the area and observe traffic signage and speed restrictions.
