For safety reasons the Clem Jones Promenade in front of the site area will be closed while the overhead works are carried out. See attached map for details of the closed area and temporary detour.

Pedestrian and cyclist access:

The Clem Jones Promenade will be closed between the Clem Jones Russell Street Ramp and the Riverside Open Space. Traffic controllers will be on-site to guide pedestrians and cyclists along the temporary detour. Cyclists will need to dismount and follow the detour route.
