Durham Street

As the teams continue to develop the base for the footpath up to the university and prepare more sections for concrete on the roadway, night work has started to install the watermain along Durham Street. 

Spring Street and Durham Street Intersection

Two sections of footpath outside Davista were completed this past week. Work continues preparing the footpath areas for cobblestone paving on the Davista and WINZ corners along with constructing the area between the existing and new road on Spring Street and Durham Street.

Durham Lane

Work continues on the southern section (from Bongard Centre to the University) of the lane as we prepare and install the concrete drainage channel and work with Hawkins on the connectivity between the University site and the Durham Lane construction. Once this section is complete, work on the section between the University and Cameron Road will start which involves installing a new drainage channel and a new asphalt surface. Both these sections will be complete prior to the opening of the University of Waikato.

Traffic management remains the same as per map below:
