Temporary road closures in the upcoming New Year

3 December 2019|Community News| Off Comments off on Temporary road closures in the upcoming New Year|

THE CBD Revitalisation Project, spearheaded by the Glenorchy City Council, is well underway with work on a major construction phase beginning in the New Year.

This phase will include major upgrade works on the Main Road and Tolosa Street intersection, which will require the closure of Main Road between Terry and Peltro streets and Regina Street.

As a result of these closures, the Metro Interchange bus mall will need to be relocated.

Council has been working with Metro Tasmania to relocate all bus stops for the duration of the works, which will see a temporary bus interchange one block south on Tolosa Street, between Barry Street and Bowden Street.

Glenorchy City Council is committed to creating minimum disruption for commuters, residents and ratepayers at this time and anticipates the temporary relocation will be for a period of six weeks between 6 January and 7 February 2020.

The work is being undertaken during school holidays, which will mean less bus movements than normal.

To assist commuters and to ensure a smooth transition, Metro Tasmania will have staff onsite during this period to assist with any questions and to direct passengers to the correct stops.

Tolosa Street between Bowden and Barry streets will be closed to general traffic and will strictly only allow Metro, residents of the area and delivery vehicles access.

Detour information for access to Main Road from Tolosa Street is as follows:

Heading north towards Claremont, Berriedale and beyond will require a detour left turn at Brent Street, then right on Chapel Street.

Heading south towards Hobart or Eastern Shore and beyond will require a right turn at Bowden Street into Eady Street.

The reverse will apply for travel in the opposite direction.

If you have any questions, please contact Glenorchy City Council on 6216 6800 or Metro on 6233 4200.
