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

Awatea Place – Full length
Parkers Road – Between 120 and 124 Parkers Road

Date and time of scheduled closures: Wednesday 27 September 2021 to Monday 29 November 2021. Closed all day and all night.

The closure is for the Awatea Place Wastewater Pump Station Project. Work involves installing new wastewater pipes and manholes in the road.  

Awatea Place residents have been contacted about temporary access, which will be available via Parkers Road, with temporary parking provided within Nelson Airport Land.  Hunter Civil will be in touch with those affected to provide further details around the parking arrangements ahead of the closure.

Parkers Road will be available to residents only, either side of the closure. Those residents within the closure area will be provided with access most of the time. The contractor will keep residents informed of any access restrictions as the work progresses. Pedestrians will be diverted around the works.

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.

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