Road closures

Roads in Palmerston North may be closed for lots of reasons, including roadworks and events. This page lists planned road closures that may result in detours and delays, as well as other situations when you might need to take extra care to look out for other road users.

Scheduled roadworks

Summerhill Drive

May to June: We're installing central refuge islands so pedestrians are able to cross safely, and widening the buffer zone between the bike lane and traffic to allow for more room between moving vehicles and cyclists.

This work doesn't involve any road closures or detours but please remember to drive carefully and reduce your speed around these works.

Cuba Street

January to September: Construction to upgrade and beautify the street between Central Energy Trust Arena and George Street.

Expect delays and observe signposted speed limits.
