Rider alert: West Basin waterfront closures

Featured News, News, Roads and infrastructure 0 416

Barrine Drive by Lake Burley Griffin will be temporarily closed.

The temporary traffic arrangements will be in place from Tuesday 13 June to Friday 8 September (one week prior to the opening of Floriade), when the road will reopen. Barrine Drive will remain open until Monday 23 October to accommodate Floriade, and will then temporarily close again.

Once the public park is completed, expected to be early-2018, it will re-open to traffic, as a shared pedestrian/traffic zone.

Pedestrians and cyclists will be diverted at the traffic lights across Commonwealth Avenue bridge with detour signage and temporary barriers.

Standard construction hours for the project will be 7am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday. Some work may occur on Saturdays 7am to 1pm. The diversions will be in place both day and night.

From Wednesday 12 July 2017, cyclists and pedestrians will be diverted down Corkhill Street.  These diversions are in place to remove any possible conflict between heavy vehicles accessing the worksite from Albert Street, and cyclists and pedestrians.

Below are the temporary traffic management plans.  Detour signage and temporary barriers will be in place.  The diversions will be in place both day and night.

There is also a lane closure on Commonwealth Avenue identified in the temporary traffic management plans.  This will only be enforced as required when we are working close to the worksite, and will occur outside of peak hours.  It is anticipated that this lane closure will be used occasionally from now until the end of February 2018.
