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. There may be implications from COVID-19 which could delay some projects. To keep our communities safe, please continue to respect social distancing practices.
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. With more cars on the road, please take care out there.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while these works are taking place – it is appreciated.
Minor delays on Avalon Dr / Mangaharakeke Dr
Minor delays can be expected at the roundabout of Avalon Dr and Mangaharakeke Dr from Monday 8 June to Friday 12 June while CCTV cameras are installed.
Traffic signal repairs and new footpath construction
Minor delays can be expected at the intersection of Church Rd and Maui St from Monday 8 June to Friday 12 June while the traffic signal lamp is replaced. Work on a new footpath for Maui St, from Church Rd to Karewa Pl, started last week and is expected to take up to four weeks to complete. The shoulder of the road is closed with traffic management in place and minor delays can be expected.
Victoria St south-bound lane closure
The south-bound lane of Victoria St, from the Alma St roundabout to 316 Victoria St, will be closed from 11.50pm to 5am on Monday 8 June for a crane lift to take place.
LED streetlight upgrade to suburban streets
As part of the city-wide project that saw us upgrade 13,000 streetlights to LED lights between 2017 and 2019, we will be replacing streetlights in three suburban streets from Friday 12 June. These streets are Santiago Pl, Tuirangi St (both Flagstaff) and Farringdon Ave (Rototuna North). LED lights last longer, require less maintenance and use less energy than the previous lamps, helping to make our city more sustainable. This work should not have any impact on public or property access.
Rotokauri Transport Hub works on Tasman Rd
As part of the ongoing work for the transport hub, we are improving the road at the northern end of Tasman Rd, between Te Kowhai Rd East and Chalmers Rd. This includes night works that started Tuesday 2 June and will go for approximately three weeks.
Arthur Porter Dr rejuvenation works
The road is open to through traffic use and there is only some final resurfacing and road marking to take place on a section of Ruffell Rd. Unfortunately, due to wet weather during the week, the night of this resurfacing will now take place on Thursday 11 June (weather dependent) and stop/go traffic management will be in place during this time.
Dixon Rd closure for drainage work
Dixon Rd remains closed at the intersection of Ohaupo Rd (SH3) until Monday 6 July, 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 south-bound lane closure from Galloway St roundabout to Cambridge Rd roundabout on Cobham Dr remains in place to allow for the construction of the Ring Road Wairere Dr extension. This closure is in place 24 hours, seven days a week.
