Extension of time: Temporary traffic changes to North Quay for sewer installation

Work to install a sewer line and connection at North Quay has extended until Monday 21 October 2019 with the section of closed road and footpath (as now barricaded) to remain.


Continuing until Monday 21 October 2019, sewer installation completion works will occur.


The works will occur within the existing footpath and lane closure on North Quay between Tank Street and Ann Street. This means the motorcycle parking will remain available at William St and Queens Wharf Road until all works are finished and the North Quay lane and footpath, with motorcycle parking reopen.

See attached map for details.

What to expect:

Equipment used will include a crane, lifting equipment, generators, flood lights, hydraulic tools and industrial fans.

Pedestrian and motorcycle access:

As per the current lane and footpath closures, there will be no motorcycle or pedestrian access to the footpath on the southern side of North Quay between Tank Street and the on-ramp to the Bicentennial Bikeway. However, pedestrian access from Ann Street along the southern side of North Quay to the Bicentennial Bikeway will be maintained at all times. To ensure the safety of pedestrians and motorists, traffic controllers will be on hand to provide assistance as required.

Vehicle lane closures:

To allow the works to be undertaken safely, exclusion zones will be set up around the work area.  This will require the temporary closure of the two lanes joining the Riverside Expressway. Traffic controllers will be in place to assist with pedestrian and traffic movements. There will be a physical barrier between the work area and the open lanes. The footpath and traffic lane will re-open to pedestrian and vehicle traffic by 6:30pm Monday 21 October 2019.
