I like the way they notify us about the closure after it has actually happened.

That looks like a serious pain in the ass for people who live in the outback. I wonder if they'll warn the mainland tour groups.

Sorry, mea culpa. I got this info on Friday evening, but was off-duty this weekend.

Since they say "9:45AM-6:00PM" I suppose they'll have it covered over with steel plates in the evening and on Sundays.

Should be interesting in the morning rush hour, especially if it's raining.

You used to be able to dodge that corner through an alley behind Best Kebab, but someone blocked that off years ago with a refrigerator and some other junk. (You can still go behind the vets, but that won't help much in this case.)

Meanwhile the local government plans to spend tens of millions on the absurd bike platform, and is trying to revive the YSW reclamation, all justified by "congestion". But the real bottleneck is right at this corner and there is absolutely nothing even proposed to improve it. They should spend a million or two to to buy back some frontage and widen the "road".

Upon further enquiry, the construction guys said that the works will be mostly concentrated outside the narrowest part of Back Street, just above Ah-Can's Tropicana takeaway shop, No. 66, so most of Back Street will still be usable for pedestrians during this time period.

Here's an additional map and a pedestrian diversion, via the hairdresser down to the Lamma Gourmet on Main Street. The closure and diversion in the first map applies more to Village Vehicles which can't use the much shorter pedestrian diversion.
