Work starts on Monday 3 May to put the pedestrian crossing on Te Mata Road, near the Village Green, on a raised platform. Once that’s complete, contractors will build a raised courtesy crossing on Napier Road. The crossings will help improve pedestrian safety and access to and through the Village Green, by helping slow traffic coming into the Village Centre.
Improving pedestrian access and safety is the key reason behind a project to build two raised crossings near the Village Green kicking off in May.
Better access to and through the Village Green for people of all ages and abilities was outlined in the Havelock North Domain Reserve Management Plan. The raised crossings will achieve this goal by helping slow traffic coming into the Village Centre.
Traffic management will be in place on Te Mata Road (Columba Way to Duart Road) throughout May, starting on Monday 3, while workers put the pedestrian crossing near the library and Village Green on a raised platform. The works will require a five-day road closure in late May, so keep an eye out for signs and please use the detours. Workers will install temporary, alternative crossings for school kids, library visitors, etc. while they upgrade the Te Mata Rd crossing.
Once this upgrade is complete, contractors will shift their focus to Napier Road, on the other side of the domain, where they will build a raised courtesy crossing near Deliciosa, Hawthorne and Thirsty Liquor. Napier Road will remain open while works take place, however traffic management will be in place.
