Tauranga residents who live along Grace Road, from 15th Ave to Scantlebury Street, will experience some disruption as the 15th Ave works take place.

At the moment, contractors have been preparing the footpath for concrete to be poured.

A Tauranga City Council spokesperson says pedestrians will be diverted onto the road to enable the footpath works to be completed; barriers will be in place to separate pedestrians from traffic. 

“To allow the concrete to harden, some residents won’t be able to enter or exit their driveway for at least two days. We will be door-knocking in an effort to speak with the affected residents about what is happening and where they can best park.”

In the following weeks, contractors will be working on both sides of the road in the area between Scantlebury Street and Burrows Street.

“During this time there will be periods when the 15th Ave access to the business centre on the northern side of 15th Ave will be closed.

“Closures will be clearly indicated through signage and we will inform affected businesses. During closures of the entry/exit point, all access to the business centre will be via Burrows Street. The works in this area are expected to be complete before Christmas.”

All that work to move the kerb how far? Is this going to 4 lane it, or will they be back in 5 years to do it again. From what ive seen so far, looks like a wider footpath, for the few who use it
