Waitohi Picton ferry redevelopm­ent Dublin Street and Broadway road closures

Work to relocate undergroun­d services on Dublin Street between the intersecti­ons of Devon, Market and Auckland Streets is underway so that early next year work can begin on the Dublin Street overbridge.


This bridge will greatly help the flow of traffic through the southern part of Waitohi Picton, and facilitate a better connection to the town centre. It includes a shared path to enable walking and cycling connection­s between the town centre and Queen Charlotte Drive intersecti­on.

For safety reasons, Broadway has had to be closed to through traffic while Dublin Street is out of action, to avoid congestion at the Auckland Street intersecti­on.

The detour for drivers coming in and out of Picton involves following Auckland Street for a direct route into the town centre, or Kent Street from Nelson Street for direct access to the port area.

Work is expected to be completed and roads reopened by 23 December at the latest. The project team is mindful of busy times, particular­ly the days when cruise ships are in town and will do what they can to open up roads on those days.

The Waitohi Picton Ferry Precinct Redevelopm­ent is a partnershi­p between KiwiRail, Port Marlboroug­h, Marlboroug­h District Council and Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.
