Update for Port Users: New Traffic Management Plans for 7 Shed Roadway
As a further update on our log unchaining project, from Thursday 4 November we will be implementing new Traffic Management Plans for vehicles using the 7 Shed roadway and also for C3 trucks unchaining at Napier Port.
These new TMPs are required as our Infrastructure team are set to commence resealing works on 1 Wharf next week. The works will take approximately six weeks to complete and will impact the area previously occupied by ISO and Genera (adjacent to the toilet amenities). This area will be sealed and consequently made available for additional log storage and improved traffic management.
On Thursday morning, Napier Port’s General Cargo team will have someone at the Security gate stopping trucks and providing an update on the below information.
New Traffic Management Plans
7 SHED ROADWAY
From Thursday 4 November, certain logging trucks will start to use the new 7 Shed triangle to unchain their loads safely, as pictured below.
Logging trucks will cross the 7 Shed Roadway in order to enter the unchain bays (yellow arrows).
STOP signs will be placed as per the image below, so please follow the red arrows and adhere to the road rules. Right turning logging trucks will have right of way into the unchain area. Please note visibility from the first STOP sign is good and drivers can clearly see if log trucks are approaching from the main road.
C3 LOGGING TRUCKS DELIVERING TO THE MAIN YARD
From Thursday 4 November, any C3 truck delivering to the main yard will unchain at the new Central Unchaining Area at the 7 Shed triangle, as pictured below. The trucks will follow the yellow arrow down to 1 Wharf and turn into the unchain area.
C3 trucks delivering to the main yard will adhere to the same TMP as pictured above. Other vehicles operate in this area, but right turning logging trucks will have right of way.
The logging trucks should pull forward and unchain at the front of the bays. Drivers should take care when re-joining the main road after unchaining. Please note, a flashing light is being installed at the front of the bays to indicate when the mooring tractor is exiting its nearby shed. All vehicles should give way to this vehicle as necessary.
ACCESS TO D AND F AREAS
The circumference of the 1 Wharf resealing works area has been painted by Higgins this week (area marked in blue below) and a number of access routes have been amended for the next six weeks, as pictured below.
- ISO trucks entering D Area will follow the normal route to gain access, but they will be unable to exit via the usual route and will instead drive through the log yard and exit on the back road.
- There will be no change for C3 trucks entering the F Area.
- The resealing works will reduce part of the back road down to one lane. This is shown on the image below as two red arrows. The large red arrow will have right of way and vehicles coming from the other direction will need to give way.

Sustainability aligned with global goals:
At the United Nations summit meeting in September 2015, world leaders adopted 17 global goals (and 169 targets) as a set of universal goals that aim to address the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world. These are known as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
