We are continuing to find archaeological items of interest in our excavations. To reduce the impact these findings have on the excavation progress, we now have an archaeologist on site.
Excavation and base preparation of the footpath on the west side of the street, from the University of Waikato to Elizabeth Street begins on Sunday night (3 March). Night works will run from Thursday to Sunday between 6:00pm-6:00am. The night works will ensures pedestrian access is readily available during the day for businesses on the southern end of Durham Street.
With the removal of the parking along Durham Street, Tauranga City Council has introduced parking restrictions on Elizabeth Street effective 27 February 2019. A parking machine and appropriate signage communicating the 30-minute limit were installed this past week.
Spring Street and Durham Street intersections
The excavation of the intersection is well underway with the base layer in place over most of it.

The asphalt work on the southern end of Durham Lane is now complete.
The access way between the University of Waikato & Cameron Road (beside 4 Seasons) will be closed for four weeks to allow new kerbing, lighting and pavement to be built. This is the next stage of the Durham lane work to provide goods service and pedestrian access to the University.
It is important to note that the lane from the University of Waikato to Cameron Road will be closed to all traffic and pedestrians beginning Monday (4 March) for about a month. This will be necessary to replace the kerbing and rejuvenate the asphalt pavement.
