Three big projects are set to cause route changes and disruptions for buses, pedestrians and motorists in central Wellington over the coming weekend.


The closures will be from 9pm Friday 6 September to 6pm Sunday 8 September.


A tower crane on the Stewart Dawson’s construction site at the corner of Lambton Quay and Willis Street is being dismantled, extended and reinstalled, which will require the closure of both streets to through traffic at the intersection.


Wellington City Council has taken the opportunity of this major closure to also carry out essential road resealing works in Lambton Quay and Willis Street over the same weekend.


Infrastructure Manager Siobhan Procter says this co-ordinated approach aims to minimise ongoing disruptions in the busy CBD. “If we have to close streets for one big project then it’s logical for us to time it with other projects and get all of the work out of the way in one go.”


Roadwork locations and detours:

• Road surface repairs on Lambton Quay - outside 219 Lambton Quay (ANZ Bank) in the bus lane

• Road surface repairs on Willis Street – between Mercer Street and Manners Street in the bus lane (southbound)

• Crane dismantling and extension on the Stewart Dawson’s Corner construction site.
