General maintenance in and around Upper Hutt this week

From time to time a temporary road closure may be required to allow for physical road works and local events. There may be some disruption to traffic as speed is reduced while going through or next to a work site. Stop/go traffic flow will be in place where required. All work is weather dependent and time-frames may extend due to this

  • California Dr – Totara Park area – UFB instillation
  • Crystal Gr – Kerb and channel works
  • Gibbons St – Sewer main renewal
  • McLeod St – Footpath works and kerb & channel

This work is weather dependent.


Find out about upcoming proposed and scheduled temporary road closures (including the application process)
