Roadworks part of summer programme

More roadworks will take place in Oamaru as part of a busy road rehabilitation programme this summer.

The next major road build has started in Ribble St between Thames St and Reed St and the work will continue until April this year.

Similar to the Eden St repairs, which occurred earlier this summer, the aim of the work in Ribble St is to ensure key sections of roads within the local roading network are renewed to meet the level of service they need to provide.

It is funded by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency in conjunction with the Waitaki District Council.

The work in Ribble St is part of the council’s road renewal activity that is tendered on an annual basis.

Drivers are asked to check temporary signage for access and street parking.

For the safety of road crew and road users, all drivers should adhere to temporary speed restrictions and signage.

Footpaths will be functional but may include unsealed and uneven surfaces during works so care should be taken.

The contractors will minimise the impact as best they can.

The work’s completion will depend on weather conditions.

Work is expected at this time of year as contractors take advantage of the longer days and better weather.
