Edward Street After Hours Traffic Changes

As part of the introduction of a new railway signalling system, signalling equipment will be installed near Central Station as part of the Cross River Rail Project.


Details of work

Technology racks and equipment will be delivered and installed into a building near Central Station in early December. Work will involve equipment arriving to site on trucks and being lifted into place using a tailgate lift.

To minimise impact on local residents, pedestrians and traffic, this work will be completed out-of-hours between 7.00pm on Saturday 3 December until 6.00am on Sunday 4 December 2022.
