Resurfacing works on Oriental Parade

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

From Tuesday 6 April to Friday 16 April, crews will be surfacing Oriental Parade between house numbers 162 and 245 (from around Freyberg Pool down to Grass Street past the Band Rotunda).

Working hours are 9am – 4pm. During this time, this section of Oriental Parade will be under stop/go traffic management.

Bus services will not be affected by our work although it may cause delays during work hours.

Pedestrians and cyclists will still be able to use the route, but must follow the directions of the crew when doing so.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
