Impacts on traffic 

We’re working during the night to minimise the impact to all road users when the road is busy during the day, and when most businesses are closed to avoid disruption.

  • Lincoln Road will be one-way city bound between Hazeldean Road and Moorhouse Avenue overnight between 8pm and 6am.
  • There will be no entry into Lincoln Road from Moorhouse Avenue.
  • Detours will be in place for westbound traffic via Selwyn Street and Harman Street, or via Moorhouse Avenue, Blenheim Road and Whiteleigh Avenue.

  • The traffic lane on the south side of Moorhouse Avenue heading westbound into Lincoln Road will be closed.
  • Traffic management will be reduced on Lincoln Road and Moorhouse Avenue during the day to allow normal traffic flow through the worksite.

Impacts of work 

  • There will be increased noise, dust, and vibration from the use of machinery for activities such as saw cutting, hydro excavation, and plate compaction.
