Street closed to traffic for Rockhampton project

Published: 25 Nov 2016 10:31am

Sections of Kent Lane will be closed to vehicles from Monday to Friday next week to enable Ergon Energy crews to safely upgrade the power network.

Acting Lines Manager Trevor Bath said the closure was required while crews replaced the high-voltage sub-transmission line which runs along Kent Lane.

“We will have a large contingent of crews, along with cranes, elevated work platforms and other vehicles, working between North and Derby Streets during the week,” he said.

“Traffic controllers will be in place to redirect vehicles away from the sections that are closed each day and motorists are advised to plan a different route to avoid delays.”

The sections of Kent Lane to be closed each day next week are –

  • Monday and Tuesday (28 and 29 November): Derby Street to Fitzroy Street.
  • Wednesday (30 November): Denham Street to Archer Street.
  • Thursday (1 December): Fitzroy Street to Albert Street.
  • Friday (2 December): Cambridge Street to North Street.

“The closures will commence about 8am daily and traffic will be able to use the streets from about 4pm each day,” Mr Bath said.

“The network will be reconfigured while this work is undertaken so the power supply can be maintained to all customers.

“We apologise to motorists and the business and residents in the area for the disruption this work will cause, however it is essential to maintain a safe and reliable power supply for thousands of customers in Rockhampton.”
