Sealing work to commence on Lucas Place

Press release
Sealing work to commence on Lucas Place

The overnight sealing of Lucas Place in Frankton will see a detour in place for vehicular traffic next week.

Queenstown Lakes District Council transport manager Denis Mander said while overnight closures for road works were still not common locally, the high number of daytime vehicle movements on the street made it the best option.

“Lucas Place is a feeder route for both Remarkables Park and Queenstown Airport and has somewhere between 8 and 10 thousand vehicle movements a day,” Mr Mander said.

“It’s a very busy road during the day but much less busy at night, which gives us an opportunity to minimise traffic disruption.”

The work would take place between the hours of 6pm and 6am from Monday 14 January 2013 to Friday 18 January, 2013. Detours and traffic management would be in place during the work period with parking restrictions also in place. Parking restrictions were also a possibility on both sides of Robertson and Douglas Streets to enable traffic to move freely.

Businesses and residents in the area had been advised of the upcoming work and arrangements had been made to ensure emergency vehicles still had access to the hospital. Vehicle access to properties and businesses would not be affected but there was the possibility of short delays.

No road closures were planned during the day although there would possibly be occasions when Lucas Place would be reduced to one lane. In those instances, traffic management would be in place.

Mr Mander said that while the road works would entail some disruption, the work was an essential part of delivering quality roads.

Professor Ian Shirley: The Budget That Failed Auckland

The 2016 budget offered Auckland nothing in the way of vision or hope and it continued the National Government’s threats against the Auckland Council. Threatening the Council with over-riding its democratic processes if it fails to release land for housing is a bullying tactic aimed at diverting attention away from the fundamental problems with housing in the region.

Shortly after the embargo lifted at 2pm news organisations started filing reports claiming that health, and to a lesser extent housing and education, were the ‘big winners’ out of the Budget.

Max Rashbrooke On The 2016 Budget

The best label for this year’s announcement by Bill English might be the ‘Bare Minimum Budget’. It does the bare minimum to defuse potential political damage in a range of areas – homelessness and health are prime among them – but almost nothing to address the country’s most deep-rooted, systemic social problems. Indeed the Budget hints that these problems may get worse. More>>
