Elizabeth Street in Tauranga will be closed from Thursday, February 27 to March 13.

The road will be closed between Devonport Road and Grey Street, to allow for completion of the developments service connections at the Farmers building site.

 “The city’s services are very deep and in the centre of Elizabeth Street, therefore, to complete this task safely there will be a road closure in place for approximately two weeks,” says an Elizabeth Properties Ltd spokesperson.

Part way through the works the westbound lane of Elizabeth Street will open. The west bound lane towards Cameron Road will remain closed and clearly signposted detours will be in place. 

 “We apologise in advance for any inconvenience. Our contractors have committed to work after hours in order to have the job completed as fast as we practically and safely can.”

Bus routes along Grey Street are subject to change during this time. People are advised to check with Bay Bus for further details.

“A fantastic Bay of Plenty summer has allowed us to continue working on the Tauranga Farmers Development on schedule.”

“Structural steel continues to go up along Devonport Road towards First Avenue and the upper level dining terrace on Elizabeth St has begun to take shape as the floor slabs are in progress.”
