And Wellington Parade will be closed to through traffic in both directions at the Clarendon Street intersection from Tuesday 11 June 2019. 

Inbound and outbound traffic will detour via Wellington Parade South. Works will be performed continuously for 24 hours per day.

Traffic controllers will be on duty at each work location to ensure traffic and pedestrians can navigate around the worksite safely during working hours. Please follow the signage and directions and allow extra travel time.
