Traffic Management for 12 weeks at Stafford St to repair slipped footpath

Stafford Street is down to one lane and traffic management is in place for at least the next 12 weeks while contractors repair the footpath and bank that slipped in severe weather at Easter.

“There’s a ‘Give Way priority system’ in place. That means that traffic coming into Gisborne city, must give way to traffic heading towards Grant Road,” says Tairawhiti Roads general manager Dave Hadfield.

“We ask that pedestrians and road users take extra care when using this stretch of road as it is now a shared space.”

A 30km speed limit is in place. Traffic will be monitored by Council, and Police will assist with extra patrols in the area.

Local consultants LDE are currently investigating repair options at the site.

The slanting street light has been removed by Eastland Network Ltd.
