Tudor and High Street traffic signal work starting soon


Waka Kotahi is advising motorists that work to install traffic and pedestrian signals at the Tudor and High Street intersection in Motueka starts on Monday 14 February.

The work will be completed in two stages, with the first stage underway from 14 February for four weeks. This will include night works in the first week, operating under stop/go traffic management between 7pm and 5am. Crews will be digging trenches across the road to install stormwater services and cables for the traffic signals.

Stage two will begin in mid-March and will run for about four weeks. This will also include some night works when surfacing and road marking is being completed. There will be some noise as we use diggers, compactors and a Hydrovac truck (contains a water blaster unit) to complete the work.

Both stages will include work on the footpaths, but people will always have access to businesses, as footpaths will remain open. During the day people can travel North and South on High Street, however, carparking will be affected. While work is undertaken on one side of the road, car parking on the other side will be closed adjacent to the work site.

During stage two when work is being carried out on the Eastern side of High Street, the entry and exit to Tudor Street will be closed. Waka Kotahi will keep closure times to a minimum, with detours in place via Greenwood and Wilkinson Streets.

Works to improve the roundabout will resume in February, including the installation of new concrete islands and signs to help people slow down through the roundabout, and repairs to the paint surface near the edges of the intersection.

Waka Kotahi thanks everyone for their patience as works on SH60 in Motueka continue. All works on SH60 are scheduled for completion by the end of April 2022.
