Rutene Road to be closed for seven days

The Gisborne District Council 4 Waters team would like to advise road users that Rutene Road will be closed for seven days from Monday 4 May to Sunday 10 May while contractors install a new storm water pipe and service lid.

The closure will take place between Harris and Hirini Streets and detours will be in place during the works.

Access to properties won’t be affected and traffic management personnel will be on site to assist road users during this period.

The works are part of Council’s $2.6m stormwater upgrade to install a new pipe along Rutene Road to reduce flooding and wastewater discharges into our rivers during weather events.

For more information about the project, see https://www.gdc.govt.nz/stormwater-upgrade-rutene-road

Council apologises for any inconvenience caused by this closure.
