Heads up: Roundabout resurfacing work
16 January 2018
The resurfacing of the roads around two of the district’s roundabouts will be carried out over the last two weeks of this month.
Work on the Guthrie Rd and Nimon St (Havelock North) roundabout will start this Friday [January 19] and take just over a week, weather permitting. Residents in the vicinity of the work have been advised and general road users are being asked to avoid the intersection if possible. While the roads will not be closed, there will be traffic management in place and there could be delays.
The second roundabout is in Mangateretere, at the intersection of Te Mata Mangateretere, Pilcher and Lawn roads. That work started yesterday [January 15] and is expected to be completed by January 27, weather permitting. That project will require the closure of the intersection from Saturday, January 21, again weather permitting. Road users will be detoured around the site, using State Highway 2.
“It is important that we get the repairs to the surfaces at these intersections completed while the weather is good,” said Hastings District Council works and services committee chairman Kevin Watkins.
“With the Guthrie Rd roundabout in particular, it is also important that we get it done before the school year starts.”
Mr Watkins said delays would be kept to a minimum and the contractors would be doing everything they could to ensure the jobs were completed as quickly possible. “We do appreciate that these works have an impact on people and we thank everyone for their patience.”
