Walker and Neptune Streets

The works will be undertaken in four stages with traffic in Walker Street flowing in a two way direction along one lane under traffic control.  To limit traffic congestion at the intersection of Walker and Neptune Streets, traffic in Neptune Street will be detoured at times, during the various stages of the works.  Additionally during the completion of stormwater drainage works at the Walker/Yaralla Streets intersection, traffic will also be detoured.

Council apologises for the inconveniences caused relating to this impending temporary road lane and staged road closures and thanks you in anticipation of your understanding and cooperation during the course of this work.
