14 September 2016 Duke Street Extension to be Completed

The Duke Street Extension is to be closed to traffic on Monday, September 26, for work on the project to be completed.

During the works, construction of new intersections at both ends – Harbour Drive and Duke Street/Vernon Street – will involve some road closures and partial closures. Footpaths will also be subject to temporary relocation.

Traffic Controllers and signs will be in place and motorists and pedestrians will be asked to follow the directions provided.

The partially completed extension of Duke Street was temporarily opened to traffic in July to provide a bypass of the CBD during the construction of the Harbour Drive/Gordon Street intersection. That intersection was opened to traffic on September 1.

The Duke Street Extension is part of the long-term planning for a CBD ring road system to relieve the City Centre of traffic congestion and to make the streets more pedestrian-friendly. As well as a new road, the location is to be revitalised with landscaping and interpretive displays of the city’s history.

Better pedestrian access and movement is a critical part of the planned transformation of the City Centre into a vibrant retail, dining and event area, as set out in the Coffs Harbour City Centre Masterplan 2031.

The Duke Street Extension completion works are due to finish in mid-November, weather permitting.​
