Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and Gisborne District Council (GDC) are working together to undertake extensive nightworks across the roading network including asphalting and bridge improvements between March and July 2022.
Work will take place at multiple sites across the city and will be undertaken at night to reduce disruption to motorists and the wider community.
The asphalting work will take place predominantly at the Gisborne City roundabouts and the stretch of State Highway 35 between the Captain Cook Statue and Okitu, this section also includes the Gladstone Road Bridge. There are many small maintenance patches to complete across the city and a small number of rural sites including Pakarae Bridge and Tarewa Road/SH2 intersection.
The Gladstone Road Bridge is a major component of the works and will include asphalting and resurfacing of the bridge deck and replacement of the deck joints. Structural repairs to the underside of the bridge will also be undertaken.
There will be road closures and detours in place for the night works. During the day, traffic will be able to flow but there will be temporary speed restrictions. Please follow the direction of our traffic management teams and observe temporary traffic management signage.
