Philip St closure

Access to and from Philip St, Carterton on to State Highway 2 will be closed on Monday, May 20 for at least two days. The closure is required due to the proximity of works to the intersection and the need to take up a lane width, meaning it would not be safe to complete this work during the day under any other traffic management layout. This work will be carried out between 7am and 5pm, weather dependent. The road will be open for vehicles outside these hours, and residents who reside in a property within the work site will be given access during work hours. A detour will be put in place when this section of Philip Street is closed, routing vehicles around the site via Gertrude Street and Frederick Road.

All property and emergency vehicle access will be maintained during the closure.
