As promised, the Spring Street intersection was fully opened to traffic and pedestrians overnight on Sunday 1 September and ready for Monday traffic. This intersection is fully functional so please obey the stop signs in place.

Durham Street is now two way traffic from Spring Street to the carpark building entrance.

The second lane of the carpark building has been completed and opened as the temporary exit lane.
