Fenton Street detour on Friday for Police building opening

Fenton Street detour on Friday for new Police building opening

A block of Fenton Street between Pukuatua and Haupapa streets is to be temporarily closed to traffic on Friday this week (6 June) to allow the official opening of the new Rotorua Police Station and Bay of Plenty Police Headquarters to take place.

The street closure will apply between 8am and 1pm with detour signage diverting traffic around the rear of the district council Civic Centre building, along Hinemaru Street (Government Gardens’ side).

Rotorua District Council said the temporary closure was a safety measure as a large number of dignitaries, official guests and general public were expected to attend the official proceedings which will take place on Fenton Street in front of the new building.

A Police spokesperson said the new Police station and regional headquarters will be officially opened by Minister of Police, Ann Tolley.

The ceremony will include a full powhiri, a march by Police personnel, inspection of Police staff on parade by Commissioner Mike Bush and Minister Tolley, and a haka performed by Police staff. It is scheduled to commence at 10.30am and conclude around 12.15pm.

Rotorua District Council says detour signs will be removed once opening proceedings have concluded and as soon as the site can be cleared. They anticipate Fenton Street will be open to traffic as usual by 1pm.
