CMT Group NZ Ltd, on behalf of Council, are constructing the new roundabout at the intersection of New Renwick Road, Battys Road and Richardson Avenue in Blenheim.
The work will include construction of the roundabout structure; widening and resealing approach lanes; re-aligning of the kerb and channel and construction of traffic islands and pedestrian crossings.
The construction program is set out for 12 weeks, commencing Thursday 15th April 2021.
This site will largely run under reduced speed (30km/h), during which we anticipate some minor delays, particularly during peak times (7.30 am - 9.30 am and 2.30 pm - 5.30 pm). There will periodically be a stop-go operation in place and Richardson Ave will also be closed periodically throughout this project.
Over the course of the upgrade, there will be heavy machinery and truck movements, along with some increased construction noise, vibration and potentially dust. We will endeavour to cause as minimal disturbance as possible, although some won't be avoidable.
