Lane closure on Gladstone Road Bridge


Tairawhiti Roads is advising that there will be a lane closure on Gladstone Road Bridge on Tuesday 9 April between 9am and 11am.

This is to enable contractors to erect the new lamp posts onto the bridge – one of the final steps in the project to create a shared walking and cycling path as part of Gisborne’s Urban Cycleways Programme.

Tairawhiti Roads General Manager Dave Hadfield says the project is nearly complete and should be open to the public by Easter.

“This has been one of our highest profile transport projects over the last few months. I know many locals have been keeping an eye on progress and are eager to see the finished result and get on their bikes to try it out,” Mr Hadfield says.

Motorists can expect traffic to build up on Wainui Road, Customhouse Street and Childers Road during the bridge lane closure and should be aware of the roadworks on Awapuni Road where delays are also expected.

Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey this summer. Keep up to date with:
