A section of River Rd near the Flagstaff shops will be closed on Saturday 25 May and Monday 27 May to allow work to make it safer for people on foot to cross the road.
The road will be closed between the Flagstaff shops roundabout at River Rd/Endeavour Ave and the roundabout at River Rd/Discovery Dr/Commodore Ave on Saturday from 7am to 12 midday, and on Monday from 9am to 3pm.
A new raised pedestrian platform with traffic lights is being installed, with the new crossing expected to be operational late next week.
During these two closures of this section of River Rd residents in the area will still have access to and from their property and access to the Flagstaff shops will remain open.
Traffic management will be in place with detours taking traffic, including buses, along Resolution Dr or Endeavour Ave. A temporary bus stop will be installed outside #25 Discovery Dr during these detours.
The Council thanks residents and people who travel in this area in advance for their patience and understanding while this safety improvement work is done.
On Monday 27 May at the Wairere Dr/Hukanui Rd roundabout, maintenance and gardening work will also be done between 9am and 3pm. For the safety of those doing this work the roundabout will be down to one lane over this time, with extra care urged for those travelling through this area.
