Now that buses are using the new Golden Mile bus route along Manners Street, we are redeveloping the area as a shared space where pedestrians will have priority.

The work will be carried out in stages over the next six months. You will still be able to use the street, get to all the businesses and shops and through to the new bus stops on Manners Street.

First up is the construction of the new kerb at the Wakefield Street end of the street. Work will be between 7.00am and 6.00pm, Monday to Friday.

Like all construction works, there will be times when the work will be noisy and dusty but the contractors will do everything possible to minimise disruption. This includes avoiding particularly noisy work at lunchtimes (12 noon - 2.00pm) and also from 7.00am - 7.30am.

We will provide more information about the work planned later this month and will regularly update our website as the work progresses.
