Guyton Street/St Hill Street

New lay-out for Totara Street/Fitzherbert Avenue intersection 

Work will begin from Wednesday 18 July (dependent on dry weather) to install a new roading lay-out at the Fitzherbert Avenue/Totara Street intersection to increase traffic safety.

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

Current road markings will be removed and the new lay-out marked. New signage and traffic islands will be installed. Thanks for your patience during this work.

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.
