A full day’s detour Spring Creek roundabout, Marlborough, Wednesday 23 August, one way traffic Thursday


The NZ Transport Agency is closing the Rapaura Road leg (SH62) of the Spring Creek roundabout north of Blenheim for up to 12 hours, 7am to 7pm, this Wednesday (23 August).

“This closure will allow our contractor to place the final asphalt surfacing layer and is the last significant piece of construction work before traffic can travel around the completed roundabout,” says Frank Porter, Transport System Manager for the Transport Agency.

A further single lane closure for east-bound traffic on Rapaura Road between SH1 and Murrays Road is proposed on Thursday.  If the weather turns wet, this work will be pushed out to the next dry day.

Heavy and extra-long vehicle drivers need to note the issues around the detour route in each direction (see map below referring to permit holders). Detours will be well marked for all drivers.

“Thanks to all drivers and residents for your patience with this major safety project and the delays this detour will involve,” says Mr Porter.
