Winthrop Way Temporary Detour

02 Apr 2024
MD071 Winthrop Way detour 1600x800 V248

Development in Aorere is well underway. We’re replacing approximately 140 social houses with around 470 new social, affordable and market homes, and we’re also replacing a huge amount of valuable infrastructure - like water services and power connections, footpaths, roads and more.

Winthrop Road (between each end of Courtenay Crescent) will be closed from Monday 8 April for approximately two months. The upcoming construction work will include:

  • Common Service Trenching for utilities
  • Streetscaping to improve the ngahere (trees and planting)

With so much work going on, we will need to temporarily close a small section of Winthrop Way to through-traffic. We will maintain residents’ access to their homes and keep everyone safe while allowing construction to progress as quickly and smoothly as possible.

A temporary traffic management plan will be in place to guide pedestrians and vehicles through the area, as well as in and out of private property.

Check out the frequently asked questions below. If you need further information, please pop into the Mangere Development Information Centre at 12 Waddon Place between Wednesday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm.

Or, get in touch with LEAD on 0508 747 48244 or aorere@LEADAlliance.nz

We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience as we carry out important work to ensure Aorere remains a great place to live, now and in the future.


Who is doing the work?

LEAD Alliance, a Kāinga Ora Alliance partner, is doing the work. LEAD is working in Mangere to deliver infrastructure upgrades so more warm, dry homes can be built.

What are the hours of construction?

Construction will be happening during the hours of 7:30am-6pm, Monday to Friday. Construction will happen between 7:30am-4pm on Saturdays only when required for critical work. 

What about on-street parking?

Within construction work zones, resident street parking will not be available and vehicle access to private properties will be restricted from time to time. Vehicle access restrictions onto property may be affected both during and outside working hours. We will let you know when your access will be impacted.

Will my rubbish be collected?

Rubbish collection will continue from your kerbside as normal.
