Tamaki Dr Ngapipi Rd project updates


22 September

Stage 2 works

Tamaki Drive – Ngapipi Road intersection works are running ahead of schedule. We are starting stage 2 four weeks early.

The road layout will change during stage 2 works.

Road layout changes from 26 September

Weather permitting, a new road layout will be in place from Tuesday, 26 September. It will have the same number of lanes, but these will narrow on the approach to Ngapipi Road.

The speed limit will be reduced to 30km/h and traffic delays can be expected. Please approach the intersection with care and watch out for pedestrians and cyclists.

Pedestrian and cycling facilities will also be retained, but the shared path on Tamaki Drive and footpath on Ngapipi Road will also narrow.

Ngapipi bridge widening

We want your feedback on a proposal to widen Ngapipi bridge to provide new footpaths and convert the existing footpaths into cycleways.

Feedback is open until 8 October.

Find out more and have your say.

Night works next week

On Sunday 17, Monday 18, and provisionally Tuesday 19 September, we will be working at night to install a new drainage pipe across Tamaki Drive.

This work is scheduled to take place at night (from 7pm to 5am) as the traffic volumes are too high during the day to do it safely.

This work is weather dependent and will be rolled to the next fine night if impacted by weather.

There will be some noise and truck movement associated with this work and we apologise for any disruption this may cause.

8 September

Work for Stage 1 is now well underway.

For safety reasons, the stairs linking Paritai Drive to Tamaki Drive will be closed later this week for up to a month as we install new kerb & channel and footpath at the corner.  Pedestrian detours are sign posted via Paritai Drive/Ngapipi Road and/or Paritia Drive/Okahu Street.

As a live construction site, the speed limit has been reduced to 30km/h and traffic delays can be expected. Please approach the intersection with care.

21 August

Stage 1 construction begins on Monday and Tuesday nights (21 and 22 August), with the removal of the traffic island at the intersection to create room for lane realignment.

The hours of work are 7pm to 5am, weather permitting. Traffic will be managed by stop-go signals.

There will be some associated noise and truck movement and we apologise for any disruption.
