George & Howick Street roundabout reconstruction

Consultation has concluded

The intersection of George and Howick Streets will be reconstructed. The road pavement and stormwater drainage will be upgraded and a new roundabout will be installed, with work on the roundabout starting in February 2019.

In January we will relocate the water mains that are underneath the intersection to allow the roadworks to be completed.

The pedestrian crossings that are adjacent to the roundabout will be removed and replaced with pedestrian refuges. A mid-block pedestrian refuge will also be installed in George Street adjacent to Machattie Lane.
