Road works in Campbell Street which will be in place for around two weeks will now have an impact on traffic flow in Argyle Street.
Hobart City Council put up a standard sign in place on Argyle Street for NO LEFT TURN into Liverpool Street from Monday afternoon. While Metro Buses will still be able to turn left into Liverpool Street, as of Tuesday (17/04/2018) there will be a specific NO LEFT TURN sign up with the exception of TAXIS, BUSES and CYCLISTS.
The Campbell Street closure was called by The John Holland-Fairbrother Joint Venture affecting Campbell Street, between Liverpool and Collins streets affecting all normal traffic commencing last Saturday, (14th April) and expected to finish on Sunday, April 29, 2018.
The closure allows for critical works to be undertaken, in preparation for the construction of the Royal Hobart Hospital Redevelopment’s new ten-storey inpatient precinct.
These works involve the connection of electricity services from Campbell Street into the new K-Block.
Authorities advised drivers to find alternative routes if they are travelling from the northern suburbs.
Emergency vehicles and Metro buses have traffic-controlled access through the area while vehicles are able to access the emergency department at all times, through traffic management at the Liverpool and Campbell streets intersection.
RHH patient drop-off and collection is available in the Argyle Street slip lane with pedestrian access to the hospital, including the emergency department, still maintained and pedestrian access also maintained on Campbell and Liverpool streets.
The John Holland-Fairbrother Joint Venture said they acknowledged the closure "may cause inconvenience, but appreciates the patience and support of the Hobart community during this vital phase of the project."
