Works programmed for January
Otaika Valley Road intersection improvements
In January 2021 we are planning to undertake improvements to the Loop Road / Otaika Valley Road intersection.
- construction of a concrete speed table on the Loop Road (south) side of the intersection
- road widening near the intersection on Otaika Valley Road
- removal of the old concrete bus shelter on Loop Road
- installation of footpaths on Loop Road and Otaika Valley Road (through the intersection area only)
- improved vehicle and pedestrian access to Te Parawhau property on Otaika Valley Road
- installation of three streetlights
These works are expected to begin from Tuesday 5 January. Traffic on Otaika Valley Road and Loop Road (south) will be reduced to a single lane, with stop/go manual traffic control in place and a 30km temporary speed limit. The concrete speed table on Loop Road (south) will be built in two halves and will require curing time.
Please get in touch if you have a heavy vehicle/4WD that you will need to pass through in, as the concrete will be sensitive to extra weight while it sets. Currently there are no night works programmed for these works. If any nightworks are required, a minimum of 72 hours’ notice will be provided to residents in proximity.
Portland Road intersection asphalting
Demands on resources across projects in Northland has meant asphalt at the Portland Road intersection will be programmed for the new year.
In order to leave the intersection in its best shape for the holiday period, fresh line marking will be applied tonight, Tuesday 15 December. This will occur from 7pm, under manual traffic control and a 30km temporary speed limit. The new streetlights at Portland will be lit up from Friday 11 December and will increase visibility and safety at night.
