Night works have become a regular feature on the busy city road repair schedule this year, which offer a safer and more productive work environment for contractors and less disruption for all road users.

Stop/go traffic management will be in place during these works. Letters are being delivered to residents, who may experience noise disruption overnight as contractors move through sections of road.

These works are funded by the NZ Government’s Provincial Growth Fund, to improve the region’s local road network, support the local economy and create quality employment opportunities for the people of te Tairāwhiti.

Council has invested over $34m of Provincial Growth Funds into Tairāwhiti local roads since May 2019, with a further $20m of projects to be completed before the end of this year.

These works are weather dependent and dates are subject to change.
