Road closure planned for Derwent Park Road

LATER this year, Derwent Park Road will be closed between Main Road and Sunderland Street for one-week for necessary maintenance on the Tas Gas strategic pipeline.

Once dates are confirmed, notification will be provided in the lead up to the works through the public notices in the Mercury, message boards and mail to directly affected parties.

Limited local access will be available for property access only within this area of Derwent Park Road during the closure period.

The works will also require the closure of the InterCity Cycleway between Sunderland Street and Lampton Avenue.

Cyclists and pedestrians using the cycleway will need to utilise alternative routes, including Sunderland Street.

Motorists are encouraged to avoid the area during peak periods.

Detour routes will be signed around the road closure area and will include Lampton Avenue, Gormanston Road, Sunderland Street and Hopkins Street.

Limited property access will be available within the road closure area.

Crossing the railway line will not be possible, so access to Derwent Park Road properties within the road closure area will be as follows:

  • Derwent Park Road west of the railway will only be available via Main Road.
  • Derwent Park Road east of the railway line will only be possible via Sunderland Street.
