Road closures

Cuba Street: George St to Lombard St

Wednesday 10 to Thursday 11 October: The rain and wind have delayed plans to chip seal this section of the road, which will now remain closed overnight. All going well we aim to start sealing the area at 6am on Thursday and reopen the road about 10am.

The Square: Church St to Main St

Monday 29 October to Friday 2 November: The section of road between the two roundabouts will be closed to west-bound traffic (ie, travelling from Church Street towards Main Street) for up to a week. This closure will enable us to re-lay the raised block pavers on one side of the road.

A local diversion will be in place, and the work area cordoned off to control pedestrian movement around the work site.

We expect to complete the other side of the road in January 2019.
