Mort Street parking spaces re-open

Released 18/03/2016

The ACT Government wishes to advise motorists and other road users that nine out of 15 parking spaces and a motorcycle parking bay at a Mort Street car park have re-opened following their closure on Wednesday 16 March 2016.

The closure at the Elouera Street roundabout was to allow for a broken drill head to be retrieved from rock approximately 3.5 metres underground, and was originally expected to reopen on Wednesday 23 March 2016.

The contractors responsible for the work decided it was not practical to remove the drill head upon identifying what work would need to be undertaken. The boring machine has now been dismantled from the drill head, which remains underground, and the hole has been filled and compacted.

Six parking spaces remain closed while the contractors work to install underground services in the area. These parking spaces are on track to re-open by 5 pm, Friday 18 March 2016

For up-to-date information visit or phone Access Canberra on 13 22 81.
