Ferguson Street safety improvements

We’re planning some changes to Ferguson Street to make the area safer, and help traffic around our city centre flow more smoothly.

The Pitt/Ferguson Street intersection is notorious for being confusing and dangerous.

The project area runs from South Street to just past Pak'nSave, and includes changes to the Pitt Street and Linton Street intersections, and widening Ferguson Street.

Our designs and the detail of the changes are detailed in the documents below.

Our traffic engineers have worked hard to ensure these changes result in the biggest safety improvements for all road users, and help the wider traffic in Palmy flow more efficiently.

We’re talking directly to those people that live in this area. However we know that people like to share their ideas for roading. If you have any feedback for our project team to consider please add it below. Please note this feedback is being given only to our roading team.

Construction in 2022

We take safety seriously and we want to make these improvements as quickly as possible. After hearing your feedback we’ll see what needs to change in our design. Then we’ll go out to tender for a contractor to build the work. This work is seen as important by Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency, which is contributing half the funds to this project.

Once we finalise a design and get a contractor on board, we’ll be able to give a better indication of how long the construction will take, but we anticipate it will be at least four months.
