Hamilton City Council is undertaking work on streets in various parts of the city over the next week to address safety
issues and carry out routine maintenance.
All this work is weather-dependent and may be deferred in the event of rain.
Road users are encouraged to use alternative routes on the dates listed below if possible, to minimise traffic build-up
and delays. However, where required, traffic management will be in place to ensure road users – including people on
bikes and pedestrians – can navigate these areas safely while work is underway.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while these works are taking place – it is appreciated.Upcoming works/delays
