Stewart Street

The entire length of Stewart Street in a southbound direction is now one-way.

A designated pedestrian access path has been installed around the laydown and storage area on the half basketball courts on A'Beckett Street.

At night, pedestrians will be able to cross A'Beckett Street at the Stewart Street intersection to the southern footpath. This access will be closed during the day for pedestrian safety purposes.

A gantry walkway on the northern footpath of A'Beckett Street creates an enclosed and well-lit pedestrian walkway that provides a safety barrier between pedestrians and the construction site.
