Until the John St intersection is paved, access will be available via Downes Lane. Once John St is accessible and paving is underway at the Downes Lane intersection, we’ll request vehicles access Downes Lane via John St. We had anticipated and notified traders that changes would take place this week, but there has been a delay in completing John St paving.

Split shifts will be underway from Sunday 24 September.
