Metro Petroleum’s discount petrol forces road closures

Share Canberra's trusted news:


THE ACT Government is advising road users that temporary arrangements will be in place today to manage possible congestion along Barrier Street, Fyshwick as a result of Metro Petroleum offering discount fuel between 12 noon and 2 pm.

The temporary arrangements will mean traffic travelling to Metro Petroleum will need to access Barrier Street from the Newcastle Street entrance and exit via Ipswich Street. A reduced speed limit of 40 kilometres an hour will also be in place.ACTION bus services may be diverted in the area, depending on traffic. ACTION recommends that any customers who catch the Route 80 through Fyshwick plan ahead or use NXTBUS to monitor services in the area.

Barriers as well as warning and diversion signs will be erected to alert people to the closure.

Traffic marshals will also be on site to direct traffic.
