Grey Base overbridge to close temporarily

Grey Base overbridge to close temporarily

The overbridge connecting the main street of Greymouth with the Grey Base Hospital will be closed for five days from Monday 26 February to Friday 2 March to allow for the installation of in-ground services.

The overbridge was closed in January this year to connect pipes between the new Grey health facilities site and the new boilerhouse site.

“Unfortunately we could not complete this work at the same time, so a second closure is necessary. We recognise the closure of the road and pedestrian access will be an inconvenience for people, and we apologise for that,” Director Facilities Development Mark Newsome says.

From 2 March to 9 March, the overbridge will be reopened, but people will not be able to access the patient and visitor car parking to the right of the bridge.

During the closure, people can use one of two Waterwalk Road entrances to access the hospital campus. There is an entrance between the new building site and Mitre 10. The 10km/hour road will take patients and visitors to car parking outside the North-Eastern side of the current facility.

Access to the emergency department, main entrance and stores/supplies, plus further general car parking around the remainder of the site can be accessed from the Waterwalk Road entrance across the road from the helicopter, search and rescue and St John bases. The speed restriction for this side of the hospital campus is 20km/hour.

“We appreciate people’s patience with these changes. The entrances will be well sign-posted with detour signage all along the road between the New World and the railway line.”

Gordon Campbell: On The Political Donations Scandals


Even paranoids have real enemies. While there has been something delusionary about the way New Zealand First has been living in denial about its donations scandal, one can sympathise with its indignation about Paula Bennett and Simon Bridges being among its chief accusers. Given that the National Party is enmeshed in a donation scandal of its own that shares the same core features, it is a bit like Al Capone being accused of wrongdoing by Bonnie and Clyde. Unfortunately, the entire country seems to be living in denial about the existence of these sort of shenanigans... More>>
