Traffic Changes in CBD

The next stage of the Townsville City Council's CBD Utilities Upgrade will take place on Walker Street and requires a temporary road closure from tomorrow.

Walker Street, near the intersection with Blackwood Street, will be closed for up to five days while aging underground water pipes in the road area are replaced.

Traffic control will be in place and access into Walker Street via Blackwood Street will be limited to local traffic only.

The bus stop in Walker St at the Blackwood St end will be unavailable during the work. Passengers will be able to access Sunbus services outside the council building or around the corner in Stanley Street.

Drivers approaching the CBD from Ingham Road, Woolcock Street or Charters Towers Road are encouraged to use Flinders St or Boundary/Saunders Street as an alternative to Sturt St to minimise congestion during peak times.
