30km/h speed restrictions over SH1 Tongariro River Bridge at Turangi


The NZ Transport Agency is urging drivers to comply with a 30km/h speed restriction enacted today over the Tongariro River Bridge on SH1 just north of Turangi.

The temporary speed restrictions have been introduced following routine inspections which have identified the need to carry out repairs to the underside of the bridge.

Limiting speeds to 30km/h will significantly reduce the stress which vehicles impose on the bridge structure while the work is carried out, allowing both lanes to remain open.

It is anticipated that speed restrictions will be in place for up to three months while the bridge is repaired. This work is being treated as a priority to minimise the period of speed restrictions.

The Transport Agency is urging all drivers to respect the 30km/h speed restrictions while the work is carried out.
