Thursday, 02 April 2015

Emmetts Civil Construction Ltd of Wanganui, on behalf of the Waitomo District Council, is to carry out bridge reconstruction work at the Kawhia Harbour Road junction with Te Waitere Road, by installing precast concrete span units with back-walls over culvert 14.

Work is to commence on Monday 13 April 2015 with an expected completion date of 26 April 2015 (weather permitting).

Work will be carried out during daylight hours Monday to Friday, as well as on Saturday 25 April and Sunday 26 April, 2015.

Due to the necessity to complete the project in two halves, the site will be restricted to one lane traffic, with stop/go traffic control during day time and appropriate traffic signs (give way) during night time.

Traffic will be managed through the site but short delays can be expected. For the safety of motorists and site staff, speed restrictions will be enforced on both sides of the construction site.

Emmetts Civil Construction Ltd advises that construction operations will cause some noise and vibration, and regrets any inconvenience caused.

Vehicle access to and from all affected properties will be maintained at all times and it is important that road users follow directions of site Traffic Management staff.

Full road closures may be implemented for limited periods of up to ten minutes, in order to enhance road user safety during specific heavy lifting operations.
