Hughes Avenue Road Closure

A reluctant decision has been made to close Hughes Avenue until further notice due to the high risk that a large rain tree could fall onto the road or Skybirdge at any time. The teetering tree comes as a result of the affects of Cyclone Marcus.

In the interim timely arrangements are being made to manage the safe removal of the tree. The safety of pedestrians and motorists is a priority, and the public are being urged to use alternate routes to and from the Darwin City and the Darwin Waterfront.

Further updates on the progress will continue to be provided via the Darwin Waterfront Facebook page and via the website waterfront.nt.gov.au
