Lincoln Road - bus lane and watermain upgrade



We’re starting work to install the new peak hour bus lanes along both sides of Lincoln Road, between Moorhouse Avenue and Whiteleigh Avenue. As part of this work we need to temporarily close Parlane Street at Lincoln Road.


This work is part of stage one of the Lincoln Road bus lane and watermain upgrade project.


Lincoln Road between Spencer Street and Dickens Street, Addington.


2 May 2022 to 27 May 2022. Monday to Saturday, 7am to 6pm (weather/site condition dependent).

We’re working hard to finish our work on Lincoln Road near Parlane Street so that it can be reopened to residents.

We were expecting to complete this section of work and re-open Parlane Street on Friday 10th June.

While we were excavating on Lincoln Road, we discovered additional underground services. We need to plan our work around these, which has slowed progress. It will mean that the closure of Parlane Street will need to be extended, and the detour will remain in place until Friday 10th June.

We’re sorry this work is taking longer than expected. We’ll continue to keep you updated as we complete this stage of work".

This is stage one of works and involves:

  • Closing Parlane Street at the Lincoln Road intersection from Monday 2 May until Friday 27 May 2022. This closure will be in place 24 hours a day for the duration of the work. Detours and traffic management will be in place to direct the public around this closure. Please follow signage.
  • Two lanes of traffic will be maintained along Lincoln Road.
  • Parking restrictions will be in place on both sides of Lincoln Road within the working area.
  • Business and property access will be maintained where practicable. We will work with businesses and residents during the work. Please let us know if you have any specific property access needs e.g. medical visits, home help, large vehicle deliveries or planned works.
  • Pedestrian detours will be in place at times - please follow signage.
  • Cyclists using Lincoln Road will be asked to merge with motorists through the work area.
