Roadworks & 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

The Square: Church St to Main St

14 to 25 January 2019 (weekdays only)

The section of road between the two roundabouts will be closed to west-bound traffic (ie, travelling from Church Street towards Main Street) for up to a fortnight. This closure will enable us to re-lay the raised block pavers on one side of the road.

A local diversion will be in place, and the work area cordoned off to control pedestrian movement around the work site.

The road will be open on Wellington Anniversary Day, Monday 21 January.
