Oldham Creek Bridge Replacement

Fulton Hogan accept responsibility and wish to apologise for the earlier inconvenience created by the false start during the week commencing 29th May 2017 and the late delivery of this project.

Material supply issues and the need to minimise the duration of the road closure along with the approved 2 ½ week programme in the stream bed demanded that we dis-established from site and postponed the removal of the existing bridge.

The new construction programme has been accepted by the Nelson City Council in line with the signed contract, with a new start date of Monday 19th June 2017.

A road closure period of six weeks is scheduled to accommodate the time of year weather and daylight conditions which restricts when work can be safely done.

Please see the detour map below. “No parking” will be in place along one side of Clovelly Street to allow school buses to manoeuvre safely.
