Full road closure begins May 2023
Maltby Road East between Gordon Street and Victoria Road South will be closed to traffic from May 1 to May 31, 2023 to prevent turtle mortality during their most active period.
Traffic will be redirected along Gordon Street, Clair Road East and Victoria Road South.
