Culvert repair under way on SH1 near Umawera

|

The NZ Transport Agency advises that work has resumed to repair a stretch of State Highway 1, south of Umawera in Northland.

Flood water from a storm event in March 2018 scoured out the river bank on the Waihou River. This caused a culvert to break and fall into the river.

“To repair it, the Transport Agency had to close the southbound lane so the old culvert could be replaced,” says the Northland System Manager Jacqui Hori-Hoult.

After starting the repair work it was found the non-standard culvert was beyond repair and a new culvert had to be ordered, which delayed the work.

“The replacement culvert is now on site and work has resumed.”

“We’ve had temporary traffic lights in place while the road is reduced to one lane. We thank motorists for their understanding and patience during this time, but we’re now able to finish the work and restore the highway to full service.”

“We expect to complete the repair and reopen the road by the end of the month, weather permitting.”

Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey. Keep up to date with:
