Kia ora koutou,

We want to advise you of upcoming tree removal work on Wadestown Road. The first phase of work is set to start on Monday 13 June and be completed on Friday 17 June. The road may also be closed on Monday 20 June if delays occur.  The work is to remove five Pine and Macrocarpa trees because they pose a high risk to the road.

This work forms part of Wellington City Council’s ongoing programme of high-risk tree removals from the Town Belt.

Work hours and access

To complete this work, part of Wadestown road will be closed between 8am and 4pm each day starting from Monday 13 June to Friday 17 June (and potentially Monday 20 June). The alternative route will be via Lennel Rd and Grosvenor Terrace.

Pedestrians and cyclists should avoid the closed area as there may be long waiting periods while the crane is in operation.
Pedestrians will be able to be escorted through the work site if required. Cyclists should either dismount and walk through the pedestrian walkway or follow the alternative route.

For more information contact our contractor, Terry O’Rourke (Treescape) on 021 970 410.

Ngā mihi,
Aislin Kelly (She/Her)
