Council contractors are undertaking significant road works on Otautau-Drummond Road. This is Council's largest pavement rehabilitation project in recent times.
Drainage and earthworks will continue as long as the weather allows but will stop between July and September. Construction of the road surface will need to wait until next season. Pavement works will begin in October until completion around December 2023.
Due to the extensive section of road involved, it is important to minimise traffic entering the site from the following side roads: Teviotdale Road, Buckingham Road, Taylor Road, McIntosh Road, North Road, Yellowbluff Road and Aparima Street.
Use of these side roads will be limited to residents only, including essential services such as milk tankers and emergency vehicles, between 7am and 7pm daily during the road rehabilitation works.
These restrictions are to reduce traffic entering active work sites. There will be traffic management in place and detours. We appreciate your understanding as we complete another roading rehabilitation project.
