Motorists on Otago Peninsula can expect delays next week as sections of Portobello Rd will be closed for the removal of two dangerous trees.
The Dunedin City Council announced the closures yesterday and said the road would be closed between 9am and 5pm from Monday to the following Friday.
A gum tree at Burns Point, just past Doon St is being felled, as is a macrocarpa at the bottom of McLelland St in Macandrew Bay.
An inland detour will be in place via Highcliff, Camp and Castlewood Rds. Residents will still have access to their homes.
Signs with further details will be put in place at the start of Portobello Rd.
Pedestrians and cyclists will not be affected by the work as the shared path will remain open throughout the week.
Wood recovered from the felled trees will be donated as firewood to a local trust.
