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.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while these works are taking place – it is appreciated.
Safety improvements on Peachgrove Rd
Traffic management will be in place from Monday 21 September on Peachgrove Rd, Claude St and Tennyson Rd while a raised safety platform and two pedestrian refuge islands are constructed. Work will be carried out during the day with traffic management on site to guide vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. Work is expected to be complete by Saturday 10 October.
Tree removal on River Rd – Flagstaff
The section of River Rd between Glen Lynne Ave and Wairere Dr will be closed to through traffic from 6.30am to 3pm on Tuesday 29 September. The closure is to allow arborist crews to safely remove trees and prune along River Rd. A detour for Wairere Dr will be clearly marked along Glen Lynne Ave. Traffic management will be in place to maintain access for River Rd properties.
Lane closure on Victoria St
The north-bound lane from the roundabout of Alma St to the intersection of Collingwood St will be closed while works continue at 325 Victoria St. The closure will be in place from 6am to 5.30pm on Wednesday 30 September and Thursday 1 October. Traffic management and clearly marked detours will be in place.
Ohaupo Rd/State Highway 3 roundabout night works
Night works have started on Ohaupo Rd/State Highway 3 as part of the construction of a new roundabout. Two-way, stop-go traffic management will be in place opposite Dixon Rd. The work is expected to take up two weeks to complete.
Lane closure on Te Manatu Dr
The north-bound lane on Te Manatu Dr, from the intersection of Borman Rd to the roundabout of Te Manatu Dr/Chalgrove Rd, is closed until Sunday 20 September for a wastemain upgrade. Please follow the detour in place.
Reminder of changes on Cobham Dr
Lane changes on Cobham Dr State Highway 1 (SH1) have begun as construction on the Ring Road Wairere Dr extension project reached another key milestone. Road users have now been moved over on to the new lanes, but the current lane setup still exists – two lanes heading into the city and one lane heading south towards Cambridge. There are new slower speed limits through the site, and motorists are being urged to take extra care while people get used to these changes.
Watermain upgrades on River Rd
The clearway is closed on the south-bound side of River Rd, from Clarkin Rd to Fairfield Rd, to enable contractors to replace watermains and connections. Works are being carried out between 7am and sundown, and traffic management is in place. The work is expected to be completed by Friday 25 September.
River path closure
The river path between Rostrevor St and Bryce St is closed so contractors can carry out specialist slip repairs. The closure began in late July and work is due to take approximately two months to complete. Slips between London St and Bryce St compromised the stability of the path and our contractors are carrying out work to repair and reopen it. River path users need to detour at either Rostrevor St or Bryce St and along Victoria St before re-joining the path.
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
