Delays Taramakau Bridge, road surface repairs Friday 25 September, 2015


Routine surface repairs are planned for the Taramakau Bridge tomorrow, Friday, 25 September. It will result in up to 15 minute delays over the day, with the morning and afternoon busy periods open.

7.30 am to 9.00 am open
The  NZ Transport Agency’s Fulton Hogan crew will work 6.00am-7.30am, then break until 9.00am to avoid the school and work rush. 

3.00 pm to 4.00 pm open
They will then work until 3.00pm and break from 3.00pm until 4.00pm to allow the school buses and school traffic to go through.

At all other times, drivers should anticipate up to 15 minute delays at the bridge.

The timetable will look like this:

“The Transport Agency apologises for the short notice for this work, due to a combination of resourcing, rail coordination, and weather.  The work has been necessary and programmed for some time. 

“A full resurfacing of the bridge deck is programmed over summer which is expected to see the deck through to when the replacement road bridge comes on stream,” said Pete Connors, Regional Performance Manager NZ Transport Agency.
