Durham Street project update - Friday, 30 August 2019

The Spring Street intersection will be fully open by Sunday night in readiness for Monday traffic. This means you will be able to drive from Cameron Road through to Grey Street on Spring Street. What an exciting milestone for the project. Pedestrians will be using the completed footpath in the intersection. 

Durham Street will be two-way traffic from Spring Street to the carpark building entrance. 

The second lane of the carpark building will be completed and open, as the temporary exit lane, on Sunday. This will allow for the third and final lane to be constructed.

Highlights from the past week:

  • Completed the small retaining wall on the north east corner of Spring Street intersection.  
  • Completed cobblestones and footpath asphalt on Spring Street intersection outside the carpark exit doorway.
  • Progressed cobblestone work on north east corner of Spring Street intersection.
  • Poured second section of parking bays on the east side of Durham Street.
  • Poured concrete footpath up to Folks Brewers.
  • Completed lane two of Carpark building entrance.
  • Completed all street light foundations.
  • Planted gardens up to the parking building entranceway. What a wonderful milestone for the project. We will provide more information on the planting next week.
