Week on our streets

Hamilton City Council is undertaking work on streets in various parts of the city over the next week to address safety issues and meet routine maintenance requirements.

All of this work is weather dependent and may be deferred in the event of rain.

Road users are encouraged to use alternative routes on the dates listed below if possible, to minimise traffic build-up and delays. However, where required, traffic management will be in place to ensure road users (including people on bikes and pedestrians) can navigate these areas safely while work is underway.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while these works are taking place – it is appreciated.

Courtney Ave
We will be constructing a raised pedestrian platform on Courtney Ave at the intersection of Courtney Ave & Aberdeen Dr from 30 September to 18 October. Most of the construction will take place during the holidays with our contractor Base Civil finishing off the job during the first week back to school. Any disruption will be minimised during the school peak morning and afternoon hours.

Bus Stop Upgrades
Four bus stops will be upgraded over the next three weeks. We will remove the old shelter, install new accessible kerbs and new shelter pads. The bus stops are:

255 Peachgrove Rd

84 Snell Dr

Temporary bus stops will be provided for the duration of the works.

Ongoing projects:

Road cycle improvements
Construction work along the length of Claudelands Rd continues next week. This project has now introduced a slower speed environment (30kmh), and new road markings to encourage motorists and people on bikes to share the road safely together, freeing up footpaths for pedestrians. Work will be carried out between the hours of 7pm and 6am and the bridge will be closed to motorists while work is underway. The footpaths will remain open and accessible at all times. A detour will be in place. For further information: https://ourhamilton.co.nz/on-the-move/work-tracking-to-schedule-on-claudelands-bridge/

Upgrade of traffic signals at intersection of Anzac Pde/Grey St
We’re continuing to upgrade the traffic signals at the intersection of Anzac Pde and Grey St. Most of this work will be carried out at night between 9pm and 6am. Lane closures and minor delays should be expected. This work is anticipated to be completed by 10 October.

Improvements to intersection of London St /Barton St and London St/Harwood St
Work continues at the intersection of London St and Barton St and London St/Harwood St in the central city. This involves installing two raised pedestrian platforms and upgrading the footpath and berms in these areas. The majority of the work is taking place between the hours of 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday and is due to be completed by 30 September 2019.

Tree works
The Council’s arborists will be working on a section of Peachgrove Rd on Wednesday, 2 October, from 9pm until 3pm. The crew will be removing a small group of liquidambar street trees near Marshall St, and to do the work safely, the road will be under stop/go control, with a road shoulder closure and temporary 30kmh speed restriction in place. The trees will be replaced in the 2020 planting season.

Gordon Campbell: On Bernie Sanders’ Presidential Bid

Bernie Sanders’ campaign for the Democratic nomination is taking on an air of inevitability, and that likelihood has been met with elation by some people, and feelings of dread in others. Is the Vermont senator the party’s best hope of motivating and leading an inspirational movement to defeat Donald Trump in November, or would he be the easiest opponent of them all for Trump to stigmatise, isolate and defeat?
