30 August 2018 to 29 August 2019 - Craven Terrace
Road Closure - Craven Terrace (between 22 Craven and Colenso Avenue). We've closed off the top half of Craven Terrace to prevent further subsidence - and to begin work on shoring up the road. Residents will have full access from Tennyson - but you won't be able to come down to Craven from the Hill, or whizz up to Colenso via Craven. This closure will be in place for a year (until 29 August 2019).

11 March 2018 to 10 March 2019 - Puketitiri Road
Temporary Speed Limit Change - Puketitiri Road There's a temporary one-year speed limit change from 100km/h to 80km/h on Puketitiri Road. Not the whole road - the strip from 50m north-west of Church Road the (roundabout) to 150m west of Poraiti Road. This change goes into effect from midnight on Sunday 11 March. The rationale for the reduced speed? Road works, new road layout changes and increased logging traffic.
