The end of Paru Paru Rd in Nelson will be closed to vehicles until mid-year.
The Nelson City Council said the closure was to allow work on the Maitai Walkway improvements to be carried out safely.
The road is now closed from the end of the Trafalgar Park footbridge which is by the closed Trafalgar Centre.
The road closure is likely to be in effect until the end of June.
Vehicle access is still allowed at the town end of Paru Paru Rd and the old tennis courts have been made available for parking.
