Good progress has been made with the safety improvement work on the raised pedestrian crossing near South End School in the past weeks and we thank you for your patience.

Capital Journeys has advised they are nearing the end of the programme and the work is scheduled to be completed this week, with the last night works taking place on Monday night 21 June. A full update from them is listed below:

Asphalt Surfacing

Monday 21 June                             7pm-5.30am                       

Raising the pedestrian crossing near South End School to specification. We are working at night when there are fewer vehicles so we can complete the job quickly, safely and efficiently without causing major disruption to traffic and people’s daytime schedules.


Roadworks may be postponed due to rain or    unforeseen factors that disrupt our weekly schedule.  To check, please visit:  https://journeys.nzta.govt.nz/wellington/road-works

Traffic management                             

Vehicles will be managed with stop/go traffic control during the works. A temporary 30km/h speed limit will apply for vehicles passing through the worksites, please take care.

Impact on neighbours

While we aim to work with as little disruption as possible, we know roadworks can be inconvenient.

Machinery is unavoidably noisy at times and reversing trucks use beepers, a mandatory safety requirement on worksites. These are usually muffled but are audible.

Thank you

Thank you for your patience and understanding while these pedestrian crossing improvements are underway.

Well-maintained highways are assets that benefit communities as well as travellers and are essential for the safety of all who use them.

Capital Journeys®, the joint venture of WSP Consultants and Fulton Hogan that maintains the region’s state highways, is undertaking the work on behalf of Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.
