Help us keep you safe!
Please take heed of traffic cones, barriers, signs and on-site spotters who are trying hard to make sure you stay safe in Great King Street.
Traffic congestion and disruptions are on the rise because of building projects at the School of Dentistry and the new Research Support Facilities site, so traffic management plans and diversions are in place to protect you.
These disruptions are the mark of progress as we build state-of-the-art facilities with cutting-edge digital technology for New Zealand’s National Centre for Dentistry.
Take care out there.
