Roading programme for May 2017
City to North Mole – work on shared Pathway
The next stage of work on the City to North Mole Shared Pathway began on Wednesday, 3 May 2017.
Because of the upgrade to a three-metre wide sealed path/boardwalk, the existing pathway from Balgownie Avenue (behind AFFCO) to Gilberd Street, near Q-West, is expected to be closed until the end of June this year.
Users of the pathway can use the detour provided via Heads Road.
Road closure - Willis Street
Willis Street (from Anzac Parade to lkitara Road) will be closed between 8.00am and 5.00pm on Thursday, May 18 to Friday, May 19 and then from Monday, May 22 to Wednesday May 24 for tree removal.
If weather conditions prevent the removal on these days, it will be carried out in the preceding week.
Road closure - Gilberd Street
Gilberd Street, at the Castlecliff end, will be closed between 7.00am on Monday, May 15 to 5.00pm on Friday, June 16 to stormwater pipe installation.
Access to properties and businesses on Gilberd Street will be available from the 'town end' of Heads Road entry at all times.
Please follow the detour signs while these roads are closed.
Temporary traffic lights - Somme Parade
Temporary traffic signals are in place on Somme Parade between Cumbrae Place and Roberts Avenue while repairs are carried out on the dropout which happened during the June 2015 weather event. Works are expected to be completed by the end of June 2017. We thank motorists for their patience at the traffic lights and remind people to take care when travelling through worksites.
Hipango Terrace walkway
The section of walkway from Hipango Terrace to the top of the steps leading to Anzac Parade will be closed for maintenance on Friday, May 26. If the weather isn't great, the back-up day for this work is Wednesday, May 31. Work will start after 9.00am to allow for school traffic. It is anticipated that it will be completed by 3.00pm, but please take an alternative route or use the Durie Hill Elevator.
