Canning Street detour switch

The installation of the major water main in Canning Street will enter Stage 5 next week with the detour in place at Park Street in North Carlton.

Southbound riders will take Park Street to Rathdowne Street and then head south.

They will be able to turn back to Canning Street at Fenwick Street, or continue into the city via Rathdowne.

City West Water has just about wrapped up the works at both the Princes and Canning Street intersections, where the water main had to be tunnelled under the road.

Those detours were gnarly for riders, but CWW is appreciative of riders’ cooperation during that period.

There are still some works to be finished on the south side of the intersection (near Dan O’Connell’s Hotel) but these works should be completed in the next 2 weeks.

Southbound cyclists will be able to use this route while the remainder of the works there are done.
