Botanical Rd disruption
An upgrade of Palmerston North’s electricity infrastructure will cause traffic disruption on a major city route from today.
Powerco will commence trenching work at the Gillespies Line and Tremaine Ave roundabout for new underground ducting and cabling.
Powerco’s Andrew McLeod said the work would continue 2.1km along Botanical Rd, down Chelwood St to finish at the Pascal St substation. He expects the job to take until the end of July. McLeod said contractors have planned the trenching work in sections to keep disruption to a minimum.
