Route 1 bus stop closures Champion Road

As part of the Streets for People government-funded project, we will be constructing a new raised pedestrian crossing on Champion Road outside Garin College. This work will be completed in two stages.

Stage 1 will take place between Monday 15 and Sunday 21 April. During this time, Champion Road will have two lanes operating with pedestrian and cyclist diversions in place. However, some on-street parking along Kareti Drive may be temporarily removed.

Stage 2 involves a two-day road closure between the hours of 7am and 6pm on Tuesday 23 and Wednesday 24 April. Champion Road will be closed as a thoroughfare between the Woolworths entrance and Kareti Drive.

Signed detour routes will be in place via Kareti Drive and Templemore Drive. There will be no on-street parking available on one side of Kareti Drive and Templemore Drive. This is to ensure all vehicles can safely travel through the detour route.

During Stage 2, the Route 1 eBus will also detour via Kareti Drive, Templemore Drive and Salisbury Road, and the bus stops on Champion Road will be closed.

If you taking the eBus southbound (towards Richmond) then please use the existing bus stop on Sailsbury Road near Woolworths. If you are travelling northbound (towards Nelson) then please use the new temporary bus stop on Kareti Drive.

Should this closure be delayed due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, the alternative dates are 25 and 26 April.

Access to properties will be maintained with the help of our on-site traffic management team.

Thank you for your patience while we complete this work.

  • Red line: road closed
