aerial image of the road works across the intersectionTennyson Street and Rolleston Drive are reopening to two way traffic as the main works of the Rolleston Drive upgrade near completion.

Isaac Construction Limited continue to make good progress and the main works are due to be completed in the next couple of weeks. In recent weeks, progress has been made in completing the road surfacing on Rolleston Drive and Tennyson Street, traffic signals have been installed ready for commissioning later in April and new pedestrian crossings have been installed at
the Masefield Drive/Rolleston Drive and Othello Drive Rolleston Drive intersections.

With the work progressing, Rolleston Drive returned to two-way traffic on Monday, with Tennyson Street reopening to two-way traffic on Friday (15 April). A give-way roundabout control will be in place for the intersection until the traffic lights have been commissioned.

From Monday April 18 the intersection will be closed from 9pm-6am for four days – weather permitting – to complete work that requires a full intersection closure. Detours will be in place. Access to the Tennyson Street and Rolleston Drive shops and shopping centre car parking will be restricted at times during this work.

When completed, the upgrade will include new lights at the Rolleston Drive, Tennyson Street intersection, road upgrades with a slow speed zone around the entrances to the Rolleston town centre, pedestrian islands, new plantings and upgraded road layout with improved pedestrian access and cycleways.
