Mary Street traffic changes
From 5am Tuesday 3 January to 5am Monday 30 January, there will be temporary traffic changes on Mary Street at the Albert Street intersection as permanent service connections for the new Albert Street station entrance (Lot 1) are completed.
From 5am Tuesday 3 January to 5am Monday 30 January, there will be road and footpath closures on a section of Mary Street (refer to map below) to facilitate construction of permanent services including stormwater and sewer connections for the new Albert Street station (Lot 1).
Detours and traffic control will be in place to assist motorists and pedestrians. Access to properties will be maintained throughout the work including outside of the Mantra on Mary.
Work will involve the use of vacuum excavation trucks, road saws, generators, compressors, excavators, haulage vehicles, lighting units and hand tools. These activities will be carried out 24-hours for the duration of the work. The road and footpath will be reinstated once the work is complete.
These works will be undertaken in two stages:
Mary Street near the Albert Street intersection, in front of the Lot 1 worksite will be fully closed from 5am Tuesday 3 January to 5am Monday 23 January. Local access to Mary Street will be maintained via Elizabeth Street and Edward Street and via Albert Street and Alice Street (refer to map below).
Bus services that usually run along Mary Street will be temporarily diverted along Alice Street. Mary Street bus stops 50 and 169 will be temporarily closed and passengers will be deferred to Alice Street bus stop 95A near George Street (refer to map below).
From 5am Monday 23 January to 5am Monday 30 January, the Mary Street westbound lane (towards George Street) will reopen, and buses will resume normal operations from bus stops 50 and 169 on Mary Street. Mary Street eastbound (towards Edward Street) will remain closed with a detour in place via Elizabeth Street. Local access will continue to be maintained
