High St works begin January 15

Works will begin in the northern end of High St from Monday, January 15. The section of High St between South St and Elgin Boulevard will be closed to vehicular traffic. Pedestrian access will remain at all times.

The intersection of High and South streets will be closed for about four weeks, subject to weather, while the intersection is reconstructed.

Detours will be in place taking in Osborne, Hovell and Havelock streets. Please obey traffic management and allow appropriate travel time.

The council received National Stronger Regions Funding from the Federal Government to conduct works in the CBA, which will include the completion of works in High St including landscaping. This would be from Bond to South streets.

The works will include the reconstruction of High St from Bond St to South St which will upgrade underground services in the area. The works will remove the dip in the road and improve drainage in the area.  Angled parking will remain.

Thank you for your patience and co-operation while we build our city heart.

Remember to support businesses who will still be trading while we’re upgrading – familiar faces, great service, support local.
