Planned works October 2018
Durie Hill Elevator
A fault with the Durie Hill Elevator means it won't be working for up to four weeks. During this period, all mechanical parts will be overhauled and new cables will be installed. We will let you know when it's up and running again via Community Link and our Facebook page.
Bastia Hill's Shakespeare Road will be closed at 27 Shakespeare Road on Wednesday, 17 October so contractors can replace a power pole. A crane will be on-site during this work. The road either side of this address will be open and traffic controllers will direct residents to and from their properties.
Anzac Parade/Marshall Avenue intersection closure
9 to 11 October 2018
Marshall Avenue will be closed for three days at its intersection with Anzac Parade while water and gas pipes are replaced. During this closure, signs will be in place to show the alternative route. Access to Marshall Avenue will be available from Millward Street.
Thanks for your patience.
Taupō Quay/St Hill Street traffic signals
Traffic signals will be switched on at the Taupō Quay/St Hill Street intersection before the end of September.
Roadworks have been underway at the intersection for several months, with traffic signal poles installed, the kerb and channel extended on Taupō Quay and St Hill Street, the seagull barrier removed (the concrete barrier which separated turning and straight-through traffic) and new lanes marked on both roads.
The traffic signals are being installed at the T-intersection as part of Te Tuaiwi Shared Pathway and an upgrade of Taupō Quay. The shared pathway runs the length of St Hill Street, separating cyclists from motor vehicles and providing school children with a safer route to schools in the central city.
The new lay-out includes designated left and right turning lanes for all drivers. Pedestrians and cyclists will be able to cross safely from St Hill Street to Taupō Quay, make their way to the City Wharf and join up with the City to North Mole shared pathway.

Crossing safely at a controlled intersection:
- Check to make sure the pedestrian and/or cyclist signal opposite you has turned green, or the button is vibrating, before you cross. The buzzer is a warning to check your signal – it is not a 'clear to cross' signal.
- Each button is an audio/tactile unit that emits its own sound and vibration to assist those who are visually impaired to cross safely.
- If the signal turns flashing red while you're crossing, carry on. You'll have time to get across. The green signal is to initiate crossing. If it is flashing red or red don't start your crossing.
- It is best to check for turning traffic before and during crossing. Turning drivers will be getting used to the new signals, so stay alert on the crossing at all times.
Guyton Street/St Hill Street intersection - new traffic signals
Mosston Road restrictions
- Heads Road (East of Mosston Road) from 6 August 2018 to 26 November 2018
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.
