Drews Ave / Rutland St intersection closure next week
The Drews Avenue / Rutland Street intersection and immediate area will be closed from 7.30am until 7.30pm on Sunday, 13 June and Tuesday, 15 June 2021 respectively for contractors to safely complete roadworks on the Drews Avenue streetscape project.
