Latest work – 12 November update
A section of footpath in Pukerua Bay will be closed for six weeks, starting next week, due to retaining wall work.
General Manager City Infrastructure Mike Evans says the work is scheduled to start on Wednesday 21 November.
“Work will be done on the footpath just south of the pedestrian overpass at Pukerua Bay (between the shops at Pukerua Bay and Te Kura Road) and the footpath will be closed while the work is being carried out.
“For safety reasons, pedestrians will not be able to access the footpath and will need to use the Rawhiti Road overbridge instead.
“The contractor will put up signs and barriers, and we are advising cyclists and pedestrians to be cautious when they are in the area and use the overbridge when they are travelling between the shops at Pukerua Bay and Te Kura Road. During this time, the road shoulder will also be closed, so cyclists are also advised to use the overbridge,” he says.
The work is weather dependent but is expected to take around six
weeks. “We appreciate everyone’s patience while the work is being carried out,”
says Mr Evans.
