Valid from: 30/10/2019 12:00am
The Seatoun tunnel will be closed Sunday to Thursday nights (11pm to 5am) from 10 November 2019, to allow contractors to install new state-of-the-art LED interior lighting and emergency lighting.
Water blasting and painting of the tunnel is also planned to begin from Sunday 23rd February to Friday 13th March 2020. This is also night works.
There will be no work on Friday and Saturday nights, the tunnel will remain open on these nights.
General traffic will be detoured between 11pm and 5am via Tio Tio Road.
Please note that late-night Route 2 buses to Seatoun will still be able to travel through the tunnel after 11pm despite the works that will start at the tunnel during this time.
The bus will stop at the tunnel entrance and be escorted past the worksite to ensure the bus network remains operating throughout the night.
