Canning to get final seal

The prolonged water main project along bike-busy Canning Street is in its final stages, and with work wrapping up, the time has come to give the road a fresh new seal.

Next week a section of the route will get an asphalt re-sheet, meaning more detours, but also delivering a great new riding surface on the trip to the CBD.

Re-sheeting will start on Tuesday 30 June and run until at least 3 July.

The southbound lane of Canning Street between Princes Street and Richardson Street will be temporarily closed and detours will continue to take southbound riders to Rathdowne Street, but the detour will be extended again to return riders to Canning Street at Kay Street.

Northbound riders can continue to use Canning Street as normal during the works.

Once the asphalt works are complete, the detour will return to the route that brings southbound riders back to Canning Street at Fenwick Street.

There is still work to do near the Pigdon Street roundabout and adjacent to the Capital City Trail at the top of Canning Street.

Riders on the trail should exercise care around these works if frost is fresh on the temporary path sections.
