Hamilton City Council is in the final stages of completing safety improvement works at the Memorial Dr/Anzac Pde intersection.
The final piece of work involves laying a coloured thermoprint (coloured surfacing) over the new raised pedestrian platform at the intersection. Weather permitting, this will be carried out during the daytime on Monday 8 July and Tuesday 9 July.
Road users are urged to use an alternative route on these two days but if they are unable to, they can be assured plans are in place to enable them to navigate the area safely and with minimal delays.
The intersection will remain open to pedestrians throughout, guided by traffic management staff.
People on bikes should be aware while the cycle lane on the bridge will be closed for the two-day period, the speed limit on the bridge will be reduced to 30kmh to allow them to merge with other traffic safely and “claim the lane”. Alternatively, they can choose to dismount and walk their bikes over the footpath with pedestrians.
For motorists, the work will require partial lane closures at the Memorial Dr/Anzac Pde intersection over the course of the two days. The details are as follows:
Tuesday 9 July (7am till 5pm): The southbound lane of Memorial Dr will be closed. This will mean there will be no left-hand turn out of Memorial Dr onto Anzac Pde. Road users on this day are to follow the detour that will be in place down Te Aroha St and Grey St.
The Council thanks residents and road users in advance for their care, patience and understanding.
