Work will include removing the existing roundabout and plantings and constructing a new roundabout designed to cope with current and future traffic requirements and improve safety aspects.

Erdinc Atalay, Palmerston North City Council's senior civil engineer says completion date is set for 3 March however it is totally weather dependent."

The new roundabout will also upgrade some water and storm water infrastructure in the area.

"We will be excavating part of the existing roadway to improve its long term structural integrity and will be replacing kerb and channelling, road markings and signage," Erdinc said.

The work is to be carried out between 6.30am and 6.30pm Monday to Saturday. The road will remain open to traffic but delays can be expected.

"If at all possible please avoid driving through this area during the day as there may be some delays," Erdinc said. "We apologise for the inconvenience."
