Traffic signal upgrade key Dunedin intersections: manual traffic control Monday and Tuesday evenings and overnight

The NZ Transport Agency is replacing traffic signal controller units at two busy Dunedin intersections next week over two nights.

The two intersections are:

  • State Highway 1 at Andersons Bay / SH1 near The Oval – Monday night through to Tuesday morning
  • State Highway 88 (Port Chalmers highway) Anzac Ave/ St Andrew St, adjacent to the Railway level crossing – Tuesday night through to Wednesday morning.

'The work will take place from 8 pm, 20 and 21 June, until 6 am the next day, to avoid the peak hours for most people,' said Ian Duncan, Transport Agency Southern Business Unit Manager. “There will be short delays. We ask all road users to please slow down and take care near crews.

'The new units replace old technology and they will provide better reliability for road users.'

The Transport Agency’s Downer team will be doing these two projects, costing around $40,000.

While the traffic signals are out of action, drivers should expect to see manual traffic controls (Stop/ Go) at these intersections.
