Metro Service 18 Diversion - Clarawood Park

Due to the Clara Park Culvert replacement scheme, a section of Clarawood Park will be closed between the junctions of Sandhill Parade and Clara Way. This has resulted in the creation of a new bridge giving access to Clara Way and Sandhill Parade.
This work will take place from Monday 24th August until Friday 27th November.
Translink service 18 will therefore be required to operate the following diversionary route both ways:

Service 18 as normal via existing route to Clara Park, then turning right onto Sandhill Parade and left over the new bridge to Clara Way & Clarawood Park, then as normal.
The two existing stops located in Clarawood Park (adjacent to the bungalows) will be moved to Clara Way city bound and Clarawood Park country bound.

For further information please call the Translink Contact Centre on (028) 9066 6630.
