Changes to traffic flow are now
in place in the CBD following the opening of the Duke Street Extension.
The main change is that there is
no longer a right-hand turn into Coff Street from the northern end of Gordon
Street. Traffic heading from the south to Duke Street, or to the eastern end of
Coff Street, should turn right at the Vernon Street/Gordon Street roundabout.
Signage and road markings are in
place and drivers are asked to note the change and avoid attempting to make a
right-hand turn into Coff Street from Gordon Street.
Drivers should also note that
there is no right-hand turn into the Duke Street Extension for vehicles
travelling west along Harbour Drive. This option was only available when the
works were temporarily opened in July.
However, now that the roadway is
fully open, drivers heading west that want to access Duke Street should turn
right at the new traffic lights and right again at the Vernon Street/Gordon
