Canberra’s first stage of Light Rail is progressing and construction is well underway. This is an exciting time in our City and Canberra Metro is working hard to see this vision come to life.
New pavement and rail works need to be undertaken on Northbourne Avenue at the Antill-Mouat Streets intersection. These works include saw cutting and rail installation
The hours of work will be from 8:00pm Friday 1 June to 4:00am on Monday 4 June.
Traffic Management and Detours:
There will be NO CHANGE for traffic travelling northbound and southbound along Northbourne Avenue at the Mouat and Antill Streets intersection. However, there will be road detours in place to divert all traffic coming from Antill and Mouat Streets.
The intersection will be completely closed to traffic turning RIGHT into Mouat Street and Antill Street from Northbourne Avenue;
The intersection will be completeley closed to all THROUGH traffic along Mouat Street and Antill Street;
Traffic control will remain in place during the shutdown period.
Traffic management will be in place and highly visible throughout the works, including signage and personnel.
Due to the nature of the work, some of the activities will be noisy. The project team will limit noise impacts wherever possible by reducing the number of machines operating at the same time and turning off equipment when not in use. Non-tonal reversing beepers will be used* and workers will be instructed to keep noise to a minimum.
The equipment that will be used includes: excavator, hydrovac truck, compactor and construction vehicles ranging from light vehicles to trucks.
