Motorists asked to patient during SH88 realignment
Motorists are being asked to be patient as work continues to realign State Highway 88 near Parry Street, around the stadium. Dunedin City Council Projects Engineer, Evan Matheson, says contractors have completed the round-a-bout, and are now in the process of joining it to Ravensbourne Road. Matheson says the road will be narrower than usual, but will remain two-way, so drivers are advised to exercise caution. He says the contracting firm has discussed the project with transport agencies and Port Otago to make allowances for large trucks.
