Mosston Road restrictions

As part of the Mosston Road stormwater pipe upgrade, access several streets will be restricted until approximately July 2019.

The Mosston Road stormwater pipe upgrade involves upgrading stormwater services to the Westborne Manufacturing Zone (Mill Road/Manuka Street). A concrete pipe, 1350mm in diameter is being built specifically for stormwater drainage to enable industrial development in the area.

Temporary traffic management can be expected in the following streets for the duration of the separation activity:

  • Hinau Street, from 9 July to 30 August 2018
  • Heads Road (East of Mosston Road) from 6 August 2018 to 26 November 2018
  • Heads Road (West of Mosston Road) from 29 October 2018 to 18 February 2019
  • Ruapehu Street from 20 December 2018 to 11 March 2019
  • Kowhai Street from 4 February 2019 to 29 April 2019
  • Titoki Street from 8 April 2019 to 29 July 2019

Although we will try to minimise full road closures as much as possible, in some cases they can’t be avoided due to the nature of the work taking place.

These will be advertised in Community Link (the Council's page in the Midweek) and on this page.  

Pukenamu Drive - tree felling

A section of Pukenamu Drive – the road that loops around Queen’s Park – will be closed between 7.00am and 5.00pm on Tuesday, 21 August for the removal of two large pine trees.

The section to be closed runs between the park’s Watt Street entrance and the Sarjeant Gallery. Access will be available to the Davis Central City Library and the Alexander Heritage & Research Library from Campbell Street.

If the weather is unsuitable, the work will go ahead on Wednesday, 22 August.

Thank you for your patience.

New lay-out for Totara Street/Fitzherbert Avenue intersection 

Work has finished installing a new roading lay-out at the Fitzherbert Avenue/Totara Street intersection to increase traffic safety.

The new T-intersection gives priority to Fitzherbert Avenue traffic, with stop and give way signs controlling traffic in and out of Totara Street.

New signage and traffic islands have been installed.

Guyton Street/St Hill Street
Temporary roundabout

The traffic lights on the corner of Guyton Street and St Hill Street are turned off while new lights are being installed.  In the meantime, a temporary roundabout is in place to control traffic at this intersection.

This work, which is part of the construction of Te Tuaiwi shared pathway, is likely to take two weeks. Thanks for your patience during this work.

Pedestrian b​​​rid​​ge closure – Matipo Park

The pedestrian bridge at Matipo Park is closed because of safety concerns after a  structural inspection. 

The access track leading from Brunswick Road is locked and the car park is temporarily unavailable. Please contact the Parks Department on 349 0001 for further information.

There is signage at Matipo Park informing users about the closure of the bridge.​​​​
