Road reopening today

Dunedin's John Wilson Ocean Dr will reopen to vehicles for four hours on weekdays, from today.

Security guards will remove and replace bollards at the St Kilda end of the road at 11am and 3pm respectively each weekday, allowing vehicles to travel along it at up to 50kmh.

The road has been closed for six years.

Dunedin City Council made the decision late last year for a trial restricted reopening of the road.
