7 July 2016 Duke Street Extension to Open

To ease traffic congestion during the Harbour Drive/Gordon Street intersection works, the partially-completed Duke Street extension has been opened to provide a temporary bypass of the construction site.

“We have accelerated work on the initial stages of the Duke Street Extension so that it can be used by light vehicles until the Harbour Drive/Gordon Street project is finished,” said Mick Raby, Council’s Director Sustainable Infrastructure.

“The bypass will operate until the new Harbour Drive/Gordon Street intersection is formally opened around the beginning of September.

“The Duke Street Extension bypass will then be closed so that final work on the road and landscaping​​ can be completed.”

The bypass route will enable south-bound motorists to bypass the City Centre from Coffs Street via Gordon Street and Vernon Street then right into the Duke Street extension before turning left onto Harbour Drive.

Northbound motorists will also be able to access the temporary Duke Street extension from Harbour Drive. Motorists should be aware that the temporary bypass is still classed as a construction zone. Drivers should use caution and follow traffic signage.

Signs are in place advising motorists of the diversion option. All other CBD roads remain open to city centre traffic.

Anyone heading to locations east or west of the CBD is still being encouraged to use Albany or Orlando Streets while the Harbour Drive/Gordon Street intersection works continue.

The completed Duke Street Extension is expected to reopen around the end of October.
