Who We Are

South Alive is an urban rejuvenation project, led by the community, with the goal of identifying the best possible future for South Invercargill and ways to make it happen.

It was established in 2012 with a small steering group, which then held a public meeting in April 2012 to generate ideas and decide priorities. Action teams of volunteers formed around each of the priority areas, and have been working since then to develop and implement projects.

🚗🚙🛻🚛🚲Roading update for South Invercargill Area - Highways South wishes to advise you that they will be completing planned pavement excavation and asphalt resurfacing work at the SH1 Bluff highway/Lake Street intersection to improve the condition of journeys in this area.

The work involves pavement excavation, fill and resurfacing of the highway in this location and will take place in both lanes. Only one lane will be completed at a time, to allow traffic to continue travelling through this area. The physical works are expected to take 5 days to complete between the 22nd and 29th July, with contingency dates of 29th July – 2nd August.

Traffic management:
• SH1 Bluff highway will be reduced to one lane controlled with temporary traffic lights between Elles Road roundabout and Frome St
• Lake St access will also be controlled by traffic lights
• Access to Hyde St from Bluff highway will be temporarily closed. Residents on Hyde St should enter via Wicklow Street
• Pedestrians will not be affected with these works
• Temporary traffic management will be installed from 7am with works starting at 8am and completed each day by 6pm
• During the evening, a temporary speed limit will be in place to protect both road users and the pavement

Highways South understands this work will cause disruption and delays, we work hard to minimise the impact and take the control and management of such works very seriously.

The friendly on-site team will assist where possible, or you can call Highways South on 03211 1561 if you have any concerns/enquiries.
