Roadworks and road closures

This page shows Council and Fulton Hogan roadworks that may result in significant detours and delays over several days or weeks.

They do not identify roadworks being done by other agencies, such as power and telecommunications.

Most of our roading projects take place over summer, but we carry out some routine maintenance to our Three Water network in winter.

Ashhurst – Oxford and Wyndham intersection

Our contractors Fulton Hogan are resurfacing the intersection of Oxford and Wyndham Streets in Ashhurst. They’re also installing a new drain and widening part of the road at the same time.

The work will be started on 28 June, and is expected to take until late July. Working hours are between 7am-6pm, Monday-Friday, with the intersection being reopened outside of these times. This work is weather dependent, so, if it gets too wet, it may be delayed a few days.

This will improve the surface of the intersection, as well as stormwater drainage around the intersection.

Traffic Management:

The entrance to the intersection from Wyndham Street, coming from Cambridge Avenue, is closed during working hours. The rest of the intersection will remain open under a stop/go system.

You’ll still be able to get in and out of your home or business at all times, but there could be the odd delay at times. All residents will need to follow the traffic management set up, which may require you to take a slightly different route to avoid the road closure.

Outside of work hours, the intersection will be fully open as normal.

Cuba Street transformation

We're creating a people-friendly route that connects Central Energy Trust Arena to the city centre.

Part of Cuba Street is reduced to one lane of traffic during construction – traffic can enter Cuba Street from the Rangitikei Street intersection. We’re lucky the street is wide enough to allow us to do this.

All footpaths remain open. This means it is still easy for everyone to come down and support businesses.

Construction started in July on the side closest to the Square, before flipping over to the side nearest to Briscoes and ANZ.

Visit the Cuba Street redevelopment page for more details.

Ferguson Street safety improvements

Two lanes of traffic will be maintained along Ferguson Street at reduced speeds of 30 km/h.

As work progresses down the street, it’s likely that two intersections will be affected for periods of construction.

The intersection at Linton Street will be temporarily closed and traffic diverted. The same will happen when work is near the South Street intersection. You’ll still be able to access these two streets from College Street, just not Ferguson.

Access to businesses and homes will remain unaffected. For more visit Ferguson Street safety improvements

Footpath closure: Whakarongo

Map showing where the footpath is closed and the location of the temporary pedestrian island.

We've begun work on our new residential subdivision at Whakarongo, which has meant closing the footpath directly in front of the subdivision. We understand this will affect Whakarongo School students, so we're installing a temporary crossing point near the site (you can see this on the map) for the duration of this construction period.

To access the shared pathway, people who usually use the subdivision side of the footpath will need to cross to the other side at the temporary crossing, walk towards the railway crossing, and cross the road again at the existing crossing point.

Reduced speed limit on James Line until further notice

During construction at Whakarongo we'll have a number of trucks coming and going throughout the day. This, teamed with the footpath being closed and the need for children to cross the road, means we've dropped the speed limit to 30km/h between Ivy Lane and Brooklyn Heights Drive. 

Please observe any signs, watch out for children, and drive with care.
