Tempoaray Road Closure and Temporary Bus Detour - Innovating Streets

GIS 2021 Innovating Streets Tipahi Kawai Tukuka Boundary Notice of Temporary Works 12Aug2021

Nelson City Council has received a proposal from Higgins to temporarily close the following roads to ordinary traffic on the dates listed below:

Tipahi Street – between Motueka Street and Tukuka Street
Kawai Street South – between Motueka Street and number 164 Kawai Street South
Tukuka Street – between Waimea Road and number 39 Tukuka Street
Boundary Road – between Waimea Road and number 38 Boundary Road

Date and time of scheduled closure: Monday 20 September to Monday 27 September 2021. Closed between 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

The closure is for line marking and maintenance on the speed hump on Tipahi Street. The line marking will be used to highlight the Innovating Streets Project area. Resident access will be available when safe and will be directed by the contractor. There may be delays at times.  

Unfortunately this means that, effective immediately, the Nbus route will change until after the work to modify the speed hump has been completed. The bus will not travel down Tipahi Street (between Kawai and Tukuka Streets) as highlighted. It will return down Kawai Street and users will have to hail the bus somewhere on the remaining route as marked.    

The decision on whether the road will be closed will be advertised on the Council's website, Residents will also be informed via a letterbox drop.
