General work hours​

Works will generally take place 6am to 6pm Monday to Saturday, unless notified.​


While driveway access will remain available, there will be changes to entry and exit routes at times between 32 and 40 Mining Street.

The existing station carpark is closed with parking available closer to Creek Street. This ensures works inside the station carpark area can progress safely. Please see site workers for bike locker access.
