Improved access on State Highway 60 for Tākaka residents


Contractors continue to make solid progress on a slip site at State Highway 60, Birds Hill, in Tākaka.

The previous schedule of daily closures is now over. However, the road through the slip remains a single lane and traffic signals are in place 24 hours a day. A 30km/h temporary speed restriction also applies, and road users should expect delays in the area.

The Birds Hill slip site requires extensive engineering and remediating to restore the road back to two lanes. We do not have an exact timeframe for how long this work will take to complete at this time.
