We are relocating the existing pedestrian crossing on Dave Culham Drive. We will install the pedestrian crossing on a new raised platform to comply with new best practice requirements outlined by Waka Kotahi.

This crossing forms an important link for future cycleways and shared paths. It will create a safe crossing to the Pohe Island Bike Park, Pohe Island Pump Park and the Whangārei BMX Club.

What we are doing

  • Relocating the existing pedestrian crossing
  • Installing the pedestrian crossing on a raised platform
  • Extending the road median and installing a new island
  • Installing some new kerb and channel to improve drainage
  • Increasing street-lighting

What to Expect

Dave Culham Drive will be reduced to one lane during this work. This single lane will switch directions during the day to accommodate peak traffic flows.

We will try to keep disruption to a minimum but if possible, we recommend finding an alternative route.

Please allow additional time for travel and follow the signs and detours posted. Thank you in advance for your patience.
