Light Rail: Night-time High Street closures to commence

Posted 21 September 2018

High Street will close between Botany Street and Wansey Road at 10pm every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday night and will reopen at 5am in the mornings between September 23 and October 23, 2018.

The closures are part of the next phase of Light Rail which will see the installation of electrical systems to provide power. 

Under the direction of traffic control,  traffic during these times will be diverted via Arthur Street. 

How will this impact you?

  • Minor traffic delays may be experienced.
  • Access for emergency services and local residents will be maintained at all times.
  • Noise blankets will be used to minimise construction vibration sound.
