Pedestrian detours are in place along Rifle Range Road while works are carried out on the new cycleway.

From Campbell Ford Drive, pedestrians will be required to divert through the Emerald Botanic Gardens to the Riverview Street carpark, via the floating walkway adjacent to the Vince Lester Bridge.

Please always obey safety instructions and road signage.

Construction works are expected to finish on Sunday September 6, 2020, with detours in place until Saturday August 8.

There will be intermittent disruptions and delays to traffic along Rifle Range Road, including some lane closures. 

Further information will be provided when closures are scheduled.
