Quay Street’s underground utility services, such as power and gas, are being relocated into a single trench. Work got underway late 2018 and will go through to mid-2019 and requires extensive road works and traffic management. It is the first step to the wider Quay Street strengthening and enhancement programme.
Project status: Construction
Project zone: Central
Construction: late 2018 to April 2019
The relocation of utility services into a single trench will help safeguard supply as well as allowing easy maintenance and future upgrades.
Changes to traffic layout
During construction there will be significant changes to the traffic layout with restrictions on a number of right-hand turns to and from Quay Street.
- Between Commerce Street and Lower Albert Street there will be one traffic lane in either direction.
- Between Lower Albert Street and Lower Hobson Street there will be one traffic lane in either direction and a westbound bus lane.
- Current restrictions to right hand turns are identified in the map below and motorists are advised to avoid Quay Street if possible. Please check the Quay Street roadworks and disruption updates.
