Delays on SH35 Tatapouri Hill and Busby’s Hill this week


The NZ Transport Agency is advising that State Highway 35 Tatapouri Hill, between Okitu and Pouawa, will be under stop/go management on Wednesday 16 January between 9.30am and 11.30am.

The following day, State Highway 35 Busby’s Hill, one kilometre south of Tokomaru Bay, will be under stop/go management between 10am and 2pm.

This is to allow the NZ Police Serious Crash Unit to carry out investigations into recent fatal crashes at both sites and is subject to weather conditions.

There will also be a 30 kilometre per hour temporary speed limit at both sites while the stop/go management is in place.

Motorists should expect delays and allow extra time for their journey.

The NZ Transport Agency wants to thank road users for their understanding and patience.

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