Maintenance Work for Coronation Avenue, SH3

11 January 2017

The NZ Transport Agency and the New Plymouth District Council are co-ordinating the replacement of a water main with road maintenance on Coronation Avenue State Highway 3, New Plymouth, to minimise overall disruption to road users, residents and businesses.

The work, which started on Wednesday 11 January, will take place between Tokomaru and Cumberland roads, and include the area directly outside the Coronation Avenue shops. Crews will be on site from 7am to 4pm, Monday to Friday.

The road maintenance work is expected to be complete by the end of January, with the water main replacement project finishing by the end of March. Both projects are dependent on fine weather.

“Coronation Avenue is a busy route into and out of New Plymouth, and work in this area may cause minor disruptions. We appreciate the patience of the people who live, work and travel through the area while we work with the New Plymouth District Council on these two important maintenance projects,” Ross I’Anson,  Highway Manager, NZ Transport Agency says.

“We will have traffic management in place to ensure that everyone, including pedestrians, can travel through the work site safely.”
