Traffic and pedestrian signals lighting up in Motueka on 2 December

High Street in Motueka will look a little different from Thursday 2 December with the red, amber and green of the new traffic and pedestrian signals lighting up at approximately 10am.

It's great to have the completion of the traffic signals at Pah Street, Greenwood Street and High Street intersection and the completion of the pedestrian signals at the crossing on High Street, north of Wallace Street delivered to schedule.

On Thursday 2 December, around 10am, you may notice the lights flashing amber – this is to alert you that the traffic signals will be switched on soon. Once activated, all traffic signals will go red, so that all traffic is stopped. Then the phase sequence will start, and you’ll be able to go once you have a green light.

The traffic signals at the Pah Street, Greenwood Street and High Street intersection will also have lights for you to use when crossing the road on foot, like the pedestrian crossing signals on High Street (north of Wallace Street). Before you can cross the road, you’ll need to press the button which will signal that you are waiting to cross. The light display for pedestrians will show a red person and then when it is safe to cross, a green person.



Work in the New Year to autumn

We will be continuing to complete planting around High Street and this will continue into 2022.

We will be starting work on the Tudor Street/High Street intersection traffic signals in February 2022.

The new roundabout at Old Wharf Road, King Edward Street and High Street is well underway, and we are aiming to complete the roundabout before Christmas. Some of the planting and footpath work near the roundabout will be completed in 2022.

We are pausing construction during the peak summertime (from mid-December to 11 February 2022) to ensure minimal disruption to businesses along High Street and to the Motueka community.

We thank you for your patience and working with our detours and road closures while we complete this important work for Motueka. We are aiming to have the full project completed by the end of April 2022.
