Realignment of State Highway 1 (designation D239) at Edendale

Southland District Council has received notice of a requirement for a realignment of State Highway 1 (designation D239) at Edendale. 

The alteration involves the construction of a State Highway bypass to the west of Edendale township with the aim to improve the highway’s functionality.

The proposed construction will stretch approximately 2.7km north-west of the township across rural land, some of which is currently used for wastewater treatment and disposal.

In addition, new vehicle access to the Fonterra Edendale Dairy Factory site is required and is proposed to be constructed on land owned by Fonterra and therefore will not be declared a road. This access will be temporary for construction purposes until the realignment has been completed. 

You can download the documents here.

We invite residents of Southland District Council to have their say and make a submission on the proposed plans here (external link) .

Please be advised that submissions close on 11 May 2017.
