Major Weekend Restrictions Beach Rd Intersection

Major Weekend Restrictions At Beach Rd Intersection

Transit New Zealand advises all road users in the Grafton Gully area that there will be major restrictions to traffic movements at the Beach Road/Stanley Street/Parnell Rise/The Strand intersection in Parnell this weekend.

Work on the intersection will be undertaken between 8pm on Friday 11 July and 5am on Monday 14 July. During this time motorists are advised to avoid the area and consider alternative routes where possible.

During the closure the following traffic movements will not be possible:

No right turn from Stanley Street into Parnell Rise and The Strand.

No straight-through access from Parnell Rise/The Strand to Beach Road.

In addition to these restrictions, all traffic on Stanley Street will travel on the western/city side of the median barrier during the weekend. Cones will be used to separate traffic travelling in different directions. As a result there will be some changes to the Alten Road/ Stanley Street intersection.

All other traffic movements will be possible and all detours will be clearly signposted.

The work is part of an eight-week programme that involves working on the intersection every weekend until mid-September. The work is weather permitting, and in the event of inclement weather, will be postponed until the next clear weekend.

For more information on the Grafton Gully project, visit the project information centre at the corner of Stanley Street and Alten Road, phone 0800 ToFreeflow (0800 863 733) or visit the Transit website www.transit.govt.nz.
