The up­gra­de of Cour­te­nay S­treet will com­men­ce in May, and will be com­ple­ted at the end of Ju­ly. It co­vers the stretch from the rai­l­way brid­ge to the York S­treet Circle.

Du­ring the first pha­se, work will be do­ne on the ou­ter la­nes in both di­recti­ons, fol­lo­wed by a se­cond pha­se, and the pla­ce­ment of a new we­a­ring cour­se o­ver all four la­nes.

A secti­on of one la­ne (a­bout 100m at a ti­me) will be clo­sed from 18:00 to 06:00 at nig­ht, with mi­ni­mal im­pact du­ring the day. The­re may be a 30mm ro­ad sur­fa­ce dif­fe­ren­ce be­t­ween secti­ons com­ple­ted and the ex­is­ting sur­fa­ce du­ring the first pha­se of the pro­ject.

Ro­ad u­sers should ta­ke ca­re w­hen chan­ging la­nes and un­der wet con­di­ti­ons du­ring pha­se one, w­hen the ro­ad sur­fa­ce will be mo­re slip­pe­ry. Low pro­fi­le vehi­cles should ta­ke ex­tra ca­re. Tem­po­ra­ry bus stops will be pro­vi­ded w­hen re­qui­red.
