Hamilton City Council’s arborists need to prune and remove trees on a steep roadside bank on Memorial Dr, meaning a section of the road will be closed this Wednesday (4 September).
Memorial Dr connects River Rd and Anzac Pde, and is one of the city’s busier roads. It’s also a popular parking location for people who work in the central business district.
The Council’s arborists have identified dead, diseased and dying trees and noxious on a steep bank at the Anzac Pde end of Memorial Dr, and the most efficient way for the team to get the work done is a closure of Memorial Dr for the day.
The closure will commence at 7am and be lifted at 3pm. Traffic will be detoured via Te Aroha St and Grey St.
Memorial Dr residents who live in the road closure are will still have access to their homes, and pedestrians and cyclists will be able to get past the work site via Memorial Park and Parana Park.
