DCC Urban Cycleways – Anzac Ave and Dunedin Railway Station
Client: Dunedin City Council (DCC)
Contract type: civil roading
Capability: kerb and channel, cycleway, traffic and pedestrian access.
The Anzac Ave Cycleway Project was tendered by Dunedin City Council in July 2018. The site was a part of a larger seven-million-dollar cycleway link, two-thirds of which will be paid for by the NZ Transport Agency, and will eventually connect the city to the State Highway 88 cycleway and to Port Chalmers.
Works on the project consisted of 510m of new kerb and channel, 200m of new poured in place kerb separator, 3200m2 of existing surfacing to be removed and reconstructed, and four large raised islands finished with paving stones.
Traffic and pedestrian management on this site were held in high regard due to its famous location. At all times there was both traffic and pedestrian access maintained through the site to ensure the local businesses and tourist areas were not affected.
The Dunedin Railway Station is the most photographed building in Dunedin and one of the main tourist attractions. The Otago Farmers Market sees over 50-70 vendors arrive at the car park next to Dunedin Railway Station each Saturday, and the site and construction have received a lot of positive feedback.
