Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises of the following closures for critical motorway improvements. Work delayed by bad weather will be completed at the next available date, prior to Friday, 24 April 2020.
Please note this traffic bulletin is updated every Friday. Critical state highway maintenance work will continue to be carried out in order to ensure the safe movement of essential goods and to provide support for lifeline functions during New Zealand’s Covid-19 response.
Essential maintenance activities include slip clearance and repairing damage after major weather events, critical road surfacing work and other safety-related activities like drainage work, clearing vegetation where sight line issues can occur and the repair or replacement of damaged assets like road signs or median barriers. All other non-essential maintenance work will be deferred. All contractors and suppliers have health and safety plans in place to ensure that all work is carried out in line with Ministry of Health Covid-19 guidance.
We ask people to be patient and respectful to roadworkers and look out for their safety and wellbeing.
