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.

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).

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.

Gordon Campbell:
On The Northland By-Election

Supposedly, Winston Peters’ victory in Northland has exposed the simmering dissatisfaction with the government that exists out in the provinces. Yet it remains to be seen whether this defeat will have much significance – and not simply because if and when Labour resumes business as usual in the Northland seat at the next election, Peters’ hold on it could simply evaporate.

On Saturday, National’s electorate vote declined by 7,000 votes, as the 9,000 majority it won last September turned into a 4,000 vote deficit – mainly because Labour supporters followed the nod and wink given by Labour leader Andrew Little, and voted tactically for Peters. In the process, Labour’s vote went down from nearly 9,000 votes six months ago, to only 1,315 on Saturday. More>>

On Pacific Spying

So New Zealand spied on its friends and allies in the Pacific – and has not only been passing on the results to the NSA, but has apparently passed on the details of the Pacific’s relations with Taiwan to our other best friends, the Chinese. On the side, the Key government has also been using the security services to gauge the chances of Trade Minister Tim Groser landing the top job at the WTO... More>>
