Updated: Grey St Dairy closes 

Sales plummeted at Grey Street Dairy when the council closed off incoming traffic from Hamilton Road for a cycleway.

The Grey Street Dairy has closed down.

Owner Wei Na shut the doors to the 60-year-old business today saying:

“Thank you for all your support throughout these years especially in (the) last few months.”

The News understands much of the perishable stock was donated to charity.

Road change almost done

9 September 2021 – A controversial cul-de-sac in Grey Street, Cambridge is nearing completion despite opposition from neighbours who say it is ruining business for a dairy owner.

In a report to Waipā District Council’s Service Delivery committee, transportation manager Bryan Hudson said the Hamilton Road, improvements made good progress from April through to July.

New cul-de-sacs in Grey and Hall streets were nearing completion, work was underway on installing the pedestrian traffic signals near Grey Street and the pedestrian and cycle paths were largely complete.

“Council staff visiting the site have had generally positive feedback from residents and pedestrians about the facilities being built,” Hudson said in his report.

The path finishes outside Cambridge Resthaven where a recreational path and refuge islands take pedestrians across the road to where Cambridge Athletics and Harrier Club rooms are in the green belt.

But several residents remain concerned at the impact the work has had on Grey Street Dairy.

A Support our Local Dairy petition has attracted nearly 1150 signatures.

Petition organiser Tania Cochrane says the road should change back to two-way access so that cars can enter Grey Street from Hamilton Road.
