Resurfacing updates and more information

Work on our roads can be very disruptive, especially during the day. We want to minimise any disruption so have got a Resource Consent that allows us to work during the evenings (RM205196).

While that may help with the traffic disruption, we understand that it might be noisier for some residents and businesses.

Night resealing:

Resealing some of our busier roads and intersections at night will significantly reduce disruption. The following are the areas planned for resealing this coming summer (2023).

We are happy to offer earplugs if you think you need these. Earplugs are available free at any of our libraries (Nellie Nightingale in Tahunanui, Stoke Library or Elma Turner Pop-up Library), or our Customer Service Centre.

It is also possible to use white noise which can be used to reduce the impact of background noise.

We will try our best to minimise noise where possible. If you have any concerns, queries or complaints regarding the works, please feel free to call the Nelson City Council Customer Service Centre (03 546 0200). This will be recorded and passed on to our Contractor (Fulton Hogan). Each complaint with then be assessed, and where possible, actions or additional monitoring undertaken to control noise.
