Spring Street and Durham Street Intersections
We are excited to announce a major milestone in the project this coming week! On Monday (18 February), we will be shifting the traffic travelling on Durham Street through the Durham Street/Spring Street intersection onto the new concrete pavement.
This shift will allow us to start work on the East side of the intersection, excavating out and rebuilding the pavement. The shift means there will be no access off Durham Street into Spring Street, and motorists will not be able to gain access into Durham Street from either the Cameron Road or Grey Street ends. We ask that with the newly completed lane, everyone takes care when travelling through and obeys the speed signs. Pedestrian access will be available.
The Cameron Road side of Spring Street will remain closed in order to provide enough room to place the cobblestone pedestrian areas outside the WINZ and Davista buildings. Traffic will not be able to drive on the newly laid concrete for twenty-eight days. We are expecting this road configuration to remain in place for three months.
The traffic plan is available above of this update for your reference.
Focus continues on completing the pedestrian access from Spring Street to the entrance of the University of Waikato. This will be completed in time for the university opening.
There has been a significant amount of coordination between the Hawkins and Fulton Hogan as the University work site and Durham Lane worksite meet. Priority has been to complete the site works at the University.
Street light bases and drainage channels have been installed in preparation for completing the pavement surfacing.
