Whatawhata Rd in the Hamilton suburb of Dinsdale will be under traffic control for two days next week for a street tree maintenance operation.
Hamilton City Council’s arborist crew will be working on three sites on the road on Monday 24 June and Tuesday 25 June, removing any low-hanging branches over either footpaths or the carriageway. Two of the sites are at the western end of Whatawhata Rd, and the third is nearer the Dinsdale shopping precinct.
The project is part of the Council’s ongoing management of street trees. No trees will be removed, with only pruning occurring.
Road users who travel along Whatawhata Rd – one of the city’s busier routes – are asked to exercise caution while passing the worksites. From time to time, motorists may be asked to stop briefly for certain work to be completed. The work will be undertaken between 9am and 3pm, avoiding peak traffic flows.
Residents’ access to their homes will not be compromised.
