Tauranga City Council is moving forward with 15th Avenue developments.
Traffic management controls have been set up to support an expected increase in traffic as people return to work and school.
Existing footpaths and part of the berm at Scantlebury Street are in the process of being removed. This is in preparation for new road surfaces, footpaths and kerbs.
Next steps will include preparation for construction of a new kerb line, along with work beginning on the new traffic light system at Burrows Street.
Existing streetlights will be relocated, with new ones being installed.
“The existing pedestrian lights will stay in use until the new traffic lights for the intersection are fully completed.”
“Prior to getting any works underway, we will communicate directly with businesses to give them a heads-up. Access to businesses will be minimally affected.”
Over the next month, the council will be preparing the base for the new footpaths. A temporary footpath will be in place for people walking along this area.
