From 29 August, 24 hour clearways will operate on Punt Road seven days a week, which will get traffic flowing outside of the peak periods and on weekends.

The clearways will operate along both sides of Punt Road, from Alexandra Avenue, to Gladstone Street on the east side and from Alexandra Avenue to Union Street on the west side.

The clearways will also improve safety by reducing accidents as vehicles merge, and provide more consistent and reliable travel for bus services along the busy road.

The success of the clearways will be reviewed over the next six months.
