Daylight Savings begins next weekend

New cycleway on Ilam Rd, between Memorial Ave and Aorangi Road.  Work includes new stormwater, kerbs/channels, footpaths, and a signalised crossing outside Jellie Park.  Traffic Impacts – a one-way system will begin on Monday 11 September – traffic will travel northbound (southbound traffic will be detoured) so there will be no access to Ilam Road from the Clyde Road roundabout.  Footpath access around the work site will be maintained. Estimated completion is the end of December.

There is a map and further information on the noticeboard at the Village Bryndwr to help you plan ahead.

The Papanui office will be closed for 5-6 weeks, from Wed 13 September.  Sabrina will be taking care of emails and can be contacted with any other queries during that time.

During this time, we would like to keep the Papanui office open as much as possible!  If you are able to be in the office for a morning – whether a regular morning or as a one-off, please let Dan know. Duties for this will be fairly light – opening the building and being present in the office with some small jobs and answering the phone involved!
