Bank Street drivers be alert for changes

Bank Street drivers be alert for changes

10 April 2014

Whangarei drivers are alerted to a change in the phasing of traffic lights in the next few months as Bank Street is upgraded.

During the upgrade sensors that detect vehicles passing through intersections and trigger changes in the traffic lights will be disabled and a two permanent light phase cycles will be used every day.

“Some drivers may find they have to wait longer at the lights than they are used to and some will find the lights change faster than they are used to,” said Traffic Projects Engineer Brendon Tong.

“We will be monitoring the system and can make further changes if any problems occur, but this is a heads up to drivers,” he said.

The changes will affect the intersection of Bank Street, Rust Avenue and Cameron Street and the intersection of Bank Street, Vine Street and Water Street.

Changes to the traffic light cycles are required to ensure traffic flows as smoothly as possible during April and May as the seal along Bank Street between the Grand Hotel at the southern end of Bank Street and the KFC building in the Regent is replaced.

For most of April work will happen on the road and kerbside during the day.

In May the bulk of the work will be done over night and the road will be reopened every morning. The aim is to disrupt the peak traffic as little as possible.

Lower Bank Street - Programme
7 April – 24 April (Good Friday)
Footpath repairs and preparatory work during the day.
28 April – 10 May
Asphalt upgrade from Water St to Hunt St. Works will be done at night with restrictions to traffic on side roads and one-way flow at times.
12 May to 16 May
Resurfacing from Hunt St to Grey St at night.
