A section of Anglesea Street footpath and two southbound traffic lanes will be reduced to one while work on refurbishment part of the Centre Place Shopping Centre continues.
The footpath on the eastern side of Anglesea Street will be closed from Ward Street to the entrance of the Garden Place car park, while the southbound lanes of Anglesea Street – closest to the shopping centre – will also be reduced to one lane. A short section of the same road lane, from Ward Street back towards Bryce Street, will also be closed.
Hamilton City Council’s Transportation Manager Phil Consedine says contractors working for Centre Place owners Kiwi Income Property Trust requested the lane reduction and footpath closure in the interests of public safety.
The reduction of lanes begins tonight, and will remain in place 24 hours a day until 31 January. Pedestrians will need to cross Anglesea Street from Ward Street.
“The work being undertaken on the Kiwi Income Property Trust site is significant and includes removal of construction materials, so we want to ensure the safety of both pedestrians and motorists passing by,” says Mr Consedine.
“The lane closure will create a little bit of traffic congestion around the Ward Street-Anglesea Street intersection, and we thank motorists for their patience while this work is completed.”
