Traffic update - week starting 26 May

With work in the Central City currently at its peak, those travelling through the Central City are advised:
• To use the Four Aves for cross-town journeys - go around rather than through.
• Fitzgerald Ave is a reliable route for both north and southbound journeys.
• To use Montreal St for northbound travel.
• Consider Colombo St and Manchester St from Bealey Ave to access the Central City.

Work in the Central City

Manchester Street southbound only between Kilmore and Armagh streets
Manchester Street between Kilmore and Armagh streets will be restricted to southbound traffic only. A detour will be in place for northbound traffic.
Durham Street down to one lane
Durham Street continues to be reduced to one lane from Kilmore Street to south of St Asaph Street.
Madras Street/St Asaph Street intersection down to one lane
Wastewater repair work continues at the intersection of Madras and St Asaph streets. Both streets are reduced to one lane (Madras flowing north and St Asaph flowing west).
Alcester Street near South City closed
From Monday Alcester Street will be closed for about two weeks. Access to South City car parking will be from Winchcombe Street, Colombo Street and Bath Street.

Work outside the Four Aves
Gayhurst Road Bridge
The Gayhurst Road Bridge will be closed from Monday for demolition and rebuild work. It is recommended that motorists heading south use New Brighton Road, North Parade, North Avon Road, Swanns Road, Avonside Drive and Woodham Road. This will be in reverse for those travelling north.
A temporary footbridge is in place for pedestrians and cyclists. Access to the footbridge will be via Rupert Place on the northern side of the river, and between Gloucester and Ngarimu streets on the southern side. Read the latest work notice for more information.

Avonside Drive
Avonside Drive will be closed between Stanmore Road and Linwood Ave while wastewater repair work is carried out. Vehicles will be detoured down Stanmore Road on to Armagh Street and then on to England Street. Work is expected to be completed in approximately late July.

Woodham Road one way for two weeks
From Monday, Woodham Road will be one way heading east between Gloucester Street and Worcester Street. A detour will be in place for westbound traffic. Read the work notice for more information.

Wilsons Road one way between Centaurus Road roundabout and Koromiko Street
Wastewater repairs continue on Wilsons Road between the roundabout and Koromiko Street. A one-way system will be in place city bound between the roundabout and Koromiko Street from Tuesday night, 27 May for approximately one week.

Main Road between the Ferrymead Bridge and the causeway
Both traffic lanes will be shifted back to the seawall side of Main Road next week. Take extra care on the new road layout, slow down and be considerate of cyclists.


Thanks
Thank you to everyone for being patient as SCIRT crews make progress city-wide, and to everyone who continues to go the extra mile to support their local businesses.
