Woolston Village upgrade: we’re streetscaping along the north side of Ferry Road.

When

Work will start on 5 January 2021 and is expected to be completed by 2 March 2021 (weather dependent). Work will be undertaken between Monday to Saturday, 7am to 6pm.

What are we doing?

From Tuesday 5 January 2021, two streetscaping teams will continue working along the north side of Ferry Road between Portman Street and St Johns Street.    

  • We’ll remove and rebuild the kerb and gutters, making the road narrower in some areas and wider in others
  • We’ll rebuild the road shoulders and will pave and asphalt the footpaths
  • We’ll also install new street furniture, cycle stands, and rubbish bins and build the garden and tree beds which will be planted next winter

Traffic, parking and pedestrians

  • Parking is available behind Woolston Library
  • Another option is to park on Glenroy Street and follow the signs to the shops as there is a temporary walkway from Glenroy Street to the community library
  • Pedestrian access to businesses will be maintained at all times
  • The temporary bus stop outside New World will move around our work sites. A stop will always be available on the north side of Ferry Road between Portman Street and St Johns Street
