Hotel repair work to affect traffic


Work to repair the Wakatu Hotel’s collapsing veranda is set to begin early next month following Queen’s Birthday weekend.

Bridge Street traffic traveling west at the intersection will be affected as Collingwood Street will be reduced to one lane due to the safety zone around the work site.

Work is expected to take two weeks and will be completed between 9am and 4pm.
Pedestrians will not be affected.

The damage was identified in mid April is believed to be due to the old age of the building.
