Hamilton City Council is undertaking work on streets in various parts of the city over the next week to address safety issues and carry out routine maintenance.
All this work is weather-dependent and may be deferred in the event of rain.
Road users are encouraged to use alternative routes on the dates listed below if possible, to minimise traffic build-up and delays. However, where required, traffic management will be in place to ensure road users – including people on bikes and pedestrians – can navigate these areas safely while work is underway.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while these works are taking place – it is appreciated.
Road closures for Super Rugby Chiefs vs Crusaders match
There will be road closures in place on Saturday 1 August from 5pm to 10pm for the Super Rugby Chiefs vs Crusaders match. These are: Abbotsford St, from Willoughby St to Tristram St; Tristram St, from Abbotsford St to Mill St; Seddon Rd, from Gate 5 to Mill St; and Mill St, from Norton Rd to Willoughby St.
Lane closure on Ulster St
A portion of the Ulster St southbound lane between Prodrive Golf and Hamilton Central Baptist Church will be closed from Monday 3 August to Friday 7 August, between 9am and 4pm, while a stormwater manhole is repaired. Traffic management will be in place, expect minor delays.
Road safety improvements on River Rd
Road safety improvement work has begun on River Rd between Wairere Dr and Flagstaff shopping centre. Works include upgrading the current footpath to create a 3m wide shared path and constructing five new raised safety platforms to provide pedestrians and cyclists safer places to cross the road. This work is expected to be completed by early September.
River path closure
The river path between Rostrevor St and Bryce St has been closed so contractors can carry out specialist slip repairs. The closure came in effect on Monday 27 July and work is due to take approximately two months to complete. Slips between London St and Bryce St have compromised the stability of the path and our contractors will be carrying out work to repair and reopen it. River path users will need to detour at either Rostrevor St or Bryce St and along Victoria St before re-joining the path.
Pedestrian and cycle safety improvements on River Rd
The construction of a new footpath and cycle-related safety improvements on River Rd, near the Clarkin Rd intersection is expected to be completed by the end of August. The safety improvement works include better street lighting, tree removal, installation of cycle lane separators, two new refuge islands and road marking. Minor delays can be expected.
Dixon Rd closure for drainage work
Dixon Rd remains closed at the intersection of Ohaupo Rd (SH3) to allow for road and drainage works to be carried out. Please follow the detours and traffic management in place.
Ring Road Wairere Dr extension works continue
The closure of one of the south-bound lanes on Cobham Dr, from the Galloway St roundabout to Howell Ave, remains in place to allow for the construction of the Ring Road Wairere Dr extension. This lane closure is in place 24 hours, seven days a week.
