I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'civic centre opening' is the definition.
The definition and answer can be both related to communication as well as being singular nouns.
Perhaps there's a link between them I don't understand?

're-route traffic around' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
're' is found in the answer.
'around' could be 'o' (I've seen this in other clues) and 'o' is found within the answer.
The remaining letters 'vertu' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't see.
This may be the basis of clue (or it may be nonsense).

Can you help me to learn more?
