Hyack Square closure/reconstruction

Beginning on Monday 17 November 2008, public access to Hyack Square and the pedestrian bridge to the River Market at Westminster Quay will be closed to facilitate the City's Hyack Square reconstruction project. The area will be closed to the public for the next several months during construction. Completion of the project is scheduled for May 2009. During this time period, alternative pedestrian access to the waterfront is available via either Begbie Street or the McInnes Overpass. Pedestrian sidewalk and vehicular access will continue to be maintained along the length of Columbia Street.

A pedestrian corridor will also be maintained for as long as possible along the east side of Hyack Square between Columbia and Front Streets, however this will need to be closed when construction occurs in this area.

These closures will be kept as short as possible, and your understanding is appreciated.
