Road closures - 18 November 2021

Cameron Road

Stage One of the Cameron Road wastewater upgrade is complete and the Cameron Road Joint Venture (CRJV) has started the streetscape upgrade between Wharf Street and Elizabeth Street intersection. There is currently a southbound lane closure on Cameron Road between Spring Street and Wharf Street.
Work on the second stage of the wastewater upgrade is underway with service investigations on First Avenue. Temporary traffic management will be in place, including parking restrictions and no left turn out of First Avenue to Cameron Road. There is also no right turn from the eastern and western side of Cameron Road into First Avenue.
Work continues on the eastern side of Cameron Road between Sixth and Ninth Avenue, and Twelfth and Fourteenth Avenue. Vehicle traffic will be reduced to one lane on the eastern side in the areas where work is taking place. Temporary traffic management will be in place, however access for all residents, businesses and retail will be maintained. It is expected this work will take up to three months to complete.

Links Avenue cul-de-sac trial

From 15 November to 17 December 2021, a temporary cul-de-sac will be in place on Links Avenue. This means no thoroughfare for general traffic for the duration, access is limited to buses, emergency services and rubbish trucks only. This cul-de-sac will be monitored by cameras to enforce these restrictions.

Elizabeth Street upgrade

The Elizabeth Street upgrade continues to work on a number of fronts around the Thirty Eight Elizabeth development (Farmers). Works on First Avenue and Devonport Road are due to be complete in November. Works to create the linear park outside Thirty Eight Elizabeth, and to upgrade Mareanui laneway between Thirty Eight Elizabeth and the Elizabeth Street car parking building will be completed in stages as areas are made available.

  • Elizabeth Street west bound lane closure: there is an extended lane closure on the west bound traffic lane (heading towards Takitimu Drive between Devonport Road and Grey Street roundabout) until approximately May 2022. The traffic lane closure is to enable streetscape works and Farmers construction to occur simultaneously. Businesses and footpaths and accessways are accessible during works. On-street carparking will be unavailable. 

Other temporary road and lane closures are anticipated on Elizabeth Street and surrounding streets including the following:

Elizabeth Street

  • Elizabeth Street between Grey Street and Devonport Road will be closed tonight (Thursday 18) to enable the removal and replacement of streetlights.

Devonport Road

  • The southbound lane on Devonport Road will be closed tonight (Thursday 18), with a stop/go in place at the Elizabeth Street/Devonport Road intersection. This will enable the installation of traffic lights. 

Totara Street safety upgrade

We’re working on a safer option for people who travel along Totara Street.

Work continues to identify underground services using hydrovac trucks between Hewletts Road and Triton Avenue. There will be speed restrictions in place and the majority of works will be during the day and should not affect access to businesses. This work is weather dependent.

Night works continue between Hewletts Road and Hull Road and will require traffic traveling south along Totara Street to be diverted along Maunganui road between 7pm and 7am, Sunday to Thursday, until this section of work is complete (pictured below). Both lanes of traffic will remain open along Totara Street during the day. 

Day work from Rata Street is due to commence throughout the week on the Port side of the road. Two-way traffic will be maintained with a shoulder closure in place.
