Construction is well underway on the section of the Peninsula Connection between Turnbulls Bay and Portobello. The project includes road widening and construction of a shared path for pedestrians and cyclists. In some areas, the road will be raised to protect it during high tides. The slip next to the Turnbulls Bay wall will also be repaired.
The stone wall has been built from Turnbulls Bay to Edwards Bay and is progressing towards Seaton Road. Sheet piling for a pump station is underway at Oyster Bay. At times, the bus shelters will be out of use as they are being raised to the level of the new road. Buses will continue to stop at all existing bus stops. Work on power and telecommunications services will start soon, but disruption to services is not anticipated.
Short sections of Portobello Road are down to one lane with stop/go signs or lights to manage traffic. If you are travelling along this route, please be patient and allow a bit more time. Please slow down for your safety and the safety of the workers.
Smaller numbers of trucks will be carting from the Clearwater Quarry until the end of the year, using a single direction loop around Weir, Papanui Inlet and Allans Beach Roads. Signs are put up when this carting is taking place. Residents will continue to have two-way access along these roads to their properties. All other traffic (such as tourists and the public) will be required to follow the single direction loop when signs are up.
