Roadworks and mitigation measures
The Saddle Road upgrade project is continuing this year as we complete the road works at the summit and various major repairs along the road. Work will also continue on the extensive maintenance programme on both the Saddle Road and Pahīatua Track.
We are close to starting the realignments works near Woodville, which will improve the safety and efficiency of the intersections and rural roads around Woodville. There will be some delays as we progress the two corner realignments, but we will endeavour to keep any disruptions to a minimum.
We are looking to make improvements to the traffic calming measures on the streets that run between Cambridge and Salisbury Streets. The speed cushions are not working as effectively as we had hoped, so we are looking to make more substantial improvements. We will be talking to adjacent residents when planning this work.
We will be providing an update on the proposed temporary bypass of Ashhurst at the public meeting next Tuesday.
