Only Final Touches Remain for Ivory Street

The upgrade of Ivory Street is nearing completion.

Road resurfacing is finished and next steps include installing the traffic islands, the road marking, and painting the islands and cycle lane. 20201207 - Queen Ivory Street Intersection

A new pedestrian refuge island will be installed just north of the Collins Street intersection and three pedestrian islands will be reinstated at their previous locations at the Queen Street intersection, outside 58 Ivory Street and 45 Ivory Street.

Senior Engineering Advisor Don Young says, “We really appreciate the work been noisy and difficult for residents for some months now - specifically the recent night works. Unfortunately, night time was the only option for this work due to the busyness of the road.”

Next week we will complete road marking with the painting of the islands and have a cycle lane coming in early January.

Installation of the traffic islands will start on 8 December and continue for 2-3 nights, although this is weather dependant. The timing of works is from 3am to 7am on Ivory Street, and 3am to 10am on Queen Street. The construction will be completed during this time to minimise disruption to traffic and local businesses.

Ivory Street will be reduced to one lane during these hours, with stop/go traffic management and a temporary speed limit of 30km will also be in place during this time.

Queen Street will be closed from the Ivory Street intersection back to the KFC entrance during installation of the pedestrian refuge island.
