Upcoming Temporary Road Closures

The Tender for the Cleghorn Avenue Pedestrian Safety Improvements was awarded at our November 2019 Council meeting to The Baker Group Pty Ltd, who plan to undertake the work between Monday the 6th of January and Tuesday 4th February 2020.


They anticipate to start around the crossing area and work towards the Eden Street intersection. Traffic won’t be permitted to travel through the Cleghorn Avenue and Eden Street intersection during this time. A detour will be in place along Fairway Crescent for access to eastern streets throughout this period.

The improvements include a raised wombat crossing which is to replace the current zebra crossing, a traffic island on Eden Street to make crossing safer, and a fence on the northern side of Cleghorn Avenue to discourage people from crossing the road outside of the safe crossing area.


Access to and from the Riverside Plaza will be retained while the safety improvement works take place. The traffic management plan is available here for further information, or otherwise contact our Infrastructure Department in our Riverside Office on (03) 6323 9300 or via wtc@wtc.tas.gov.au
