Council has received safety concerns around the current Inglis Street, Church Street and Park Street junction arrangement. In response to this Council sought the advice of independent traffic engineers to improve safety in this location. As a result, Council intends to realign Park Street through the vacant land at 36 Inglis Street away from the busy junction. Also, the owners of the Wynyard IGA supermarket intend to upgrade their car park and move the entrance away from this junction.
These works will be conducted during the 2022/23 financial year with the new section of Park Street (through 36 Inglis Street) to be constructed first to minimise disruption to Park Street residents and give a complete through road before any car park upgrade works begins in stages.
