The NZ Transport Agency advises Lyttelton people and anyone coming into or going out of Lyttelton via the tunnel to expect short delays Thursday night, 7 April after 8 pm, due to essential tunnel maintenance.
Contractors will be undertaking works in the Lyttelton Tunnel overnight Thursday, 7 April from 8 pm through to Friday, 8 April, 2 am. The night-time works will place restrictions on traffic flows through the tunnel, and dangerous goods vehicles will not be permitted.
Normal traffic will be restricted to single lane operation after 8 pm and before 2 am, so around 10 minute delays at each end are expected.
“The Transport Agency apologises for the inconvenience caused to road users, however these works are for essential maintenance and need to be undertaken in this timeframe,” said Transport Agency Journey Manager Lee Wright.
