Upper Clutha Safety Improvements Programme
Work to improve roads and intersections in several locations around Wānaka and the Upper Clutha.
About the programme of works
We’re upgrading several intersections and roads around Wānaka and the Upper Clutha as part of a continuing programme of works with Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Authority to improve safety for road users in the area.
These road safety improvements are partially funded by Waka Kotahi as part of New Zealand’s national road safety strategy.
Work to construct a roundabout at the intersection of Aubrey Road and Anderson Road was completed on Thursday 8 November 2023.
The new roundabout includes a slightly amended road layout, new raised courtesy crossings to provide safe spaces for people walking to cross, and a connection for the soon-to-be-completed shared pathway on Anderson Road.Close
Starting from Monday 20 November 2023, work will be underway to construct a roundabout at the intersection of Capell Avenue and Domain Road in Hāwea, and a new pedestrian refuge crossing.
Domain Road will be closed between Capell Avenue and Noema Terrace through to the extended date of Wednesday 20 December. A detour in place using Noema Terrace and Bodkin Street during the closure.
Crews will then return to site on Tuesday 9 January 2024 and require temporary traffic management once more, with the roundabout expected to be completed by late March.
Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the worksite at all times.
The contract for this project was awarded to HEB Construction.Close
Design is currently being completed for a roundabout at Riverbank Road and Ballantyne Road in Wānaka.
We'll share more details on this project soon.Close
Work is underway to install over 9,000 metres of new safety barriers on Wānaka-Mount Aspiring Road and Cardrona Valley Road, with additional signage, minor earthworks and roadside improvements, road markings, and a range of landscaping and native planting included in the project.
