Roadworks and 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.


Cuba Street

Ongoing roadworks in Cuba Street as work continues on the Cuba St revitalisation project.

Please take care and drive to the conditions.

All footpaths will remain open at all times. 

Road closures

Cuba Street: 6pm Monday 4 March to 6am Tuesday 5 March

The raised midsection of road will be closed overnight to finish the coloured coating on the roadway between the Distinction Hotel and Pashas Kebab Shop.

The road closure will also affect the intersections of Andrew Young and Cuba Street, and Campbell and Cuba Street. Depending on the order of works these intersections may be open intermittently. 

The closure also includes a community-led project, which will extend the closure to include the intersection of Lombard and Cuba Streets.

All footpaths within the area will remain open at all times.

This work is weather dependent. If raining, it will be rescheduled for the following week, overnight on Monday 11 March.
