Roadworks and road closures

This page lists roadworks 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.

Road closures

Tennent Drive reopens Tuesday 24 November

Tennent Drive will be back to operating like normal from Tuesday. Tonight (Monday 23) the contractors will be sweeping the road to remove chip, and doing the line marking. Thanks for your patience over the past week as we did this important work to keep you safe on our roads.

City roadworks

Churchill Avenue, Monday 12 October until further notice

Stormwater upgrade works are underway in Churchill Ave, with intermittent road closures and disruption to traffic at the Albert Street end of the road.

Please drive with care and follow any signposted detours.

Parents dropping children off at Hokowhitu School should expect delays on Churchill and may wish to plan an alternative route.

This work is scheduled to finish before Christmas.
