Temporary Road Closure - Konini Street/Gloucester Street

Nelson City Council has received a proposal from Ching Contracting Ltd to temporarily close the below road to ordinary traffic:

Konini Street – from Kerr Street to #77 Konini Street
Gloucester Street – from Vanguard Street to Kerr Street

Date and time of closure:
Monday 19 April to Friday 30 July 2021, Closed between 8.00am – 4.00pm

Kerr Street traffic will be detoured to Hardy Street via Oxford Street.

The closure is for a stormwater and watermain upgrade.

We will only be making minor changes to the road layout as part of these works. The road safety upgrade we have been consulting with you on is separate from this work.

The proposal is for no vehicle access through the work site during the above times, ordinary traffic will be detoured.

Access will be provided for residents outside of working hours and during the day when it is safe to do so, there may be delays.

The contractor will liaise with residents living within the worksite and manage access to driveways with them.

Pedestrian access past the work site will be kept open whenever possible, there may be delays.

To understand how this closure could impact residents, we would welcome feedback on this proposal by Wednesday 17 March 2021.

Feedback can be sent:
