The new Riverside Drive Diversion route is now in operation with all traffic permanently diverted via Barrack Street, The Esplanade and William Street.

  • The dual use path on the eastern side of Barrack Street
  • The dual use path on the southern side of The Esplanade
  • Temporary paths on William Street (that have been constructed inside the site boundary)

This route requires cyclists to cross at traffic signals or ride with the traffic, and will remain in place until 2015
