Planned temporary closure of Hospital Creek Embankment
Clutha District Council will be undertaking re-grassing work along the Hospital Creek Embankment. This will involve laying topsoil to 100mm and then hydroseeding.
Council will erect fencing at each side of the affected area as highlighted in blue and red on the map below, temporarily closing public access between Hospital Road and the Blair Athol Walkway.
The grassing operation will begin on Monday 6 November 2023. Council expects to reopen the accessway to the public prior to Christmas or earlier, dependent on grass growth.
Access to the Blair Athol Walkway will remain open at the entrance point at the Balclutha Road Bridge, behind Te Pou ō Mata-Au Clutha District War Memorial and Community Centre, or through Naish Park on Charlotte Street, via the step bridge.
Dog owners are reminded that dogs should remain on a lead at all times when in Naish Park and on the Blair Athol Walkway.
The operation area will be clearly signposted with information signs in place.
Council apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this work, please contact Council on 0800 801 350.
