RC 16-047 Brook Street closure extension



Pursuant to the Local Government Act 1974, notice is hereby given that Nelson City Council will extend the duration of the BROOK STREET closure.  It will be an offence under this Act for any persons without an authorised permit to use the road for ordinary vehicle traffic during the period of closure.

Duration of closure: the current closure will continue until 5 pm Friday 17 March 2017, and will apply all day and night, including weekends.

The current closure from Miro Street to Blick Terrace will be reduced to the bridge over Brook Stream at 95 Brook Street to Blick Terrace. 

This closure is for the construction of a critical water supply pipeline.

Residential access to properties in the closed section will not be stopped except when trenching is at a property’s driveway, in which case 24 hours advance notice will be given.  Driveway access will typically not be stopped for more than 24 hours in this case.

Southbound traffic on Brook Street will detour via Westbrook Terrace.  The current temporary conversion of Westbrook Terrace to a two-way, two lane road will continue but will be reduced in length.

Existing parking restrictions will be reduced to match the reduced length of the closure and diversion.

Vehicles longer than 8 meters will need to be piloted along the detour route.  Pilots will be provided by the contractor.

Nelson City Council thanks the public for its patience and understanding.
