Further safety improvement work at the Nevis Bluff


Safety improvement works at the Nevis Bluff on State highway (SH6) between Cromwell and Queenstown will continue through until Friday 27 March 2015.

Motorists can expect delays of up to 10 minutes on weekdays between 8:00am and 5:00pm until Friday 6 March 2015, subject to weather conditions.

The work involves tidying up following recent rock stabilisation work and completing routine tasks associated with the safety management programme, for this site.

From Monday 9 March 2015 until Friday 27 March, the focus will shift to rock bolting work which is expected to cause minimal disruption for road users. No work will be carried out on Otago Anniversary Day, Monday 23 March.

The Transport Agency thanks road users for their patience while this essential safety work is completed.
