Planned night closures on Brynderwyn Hill for maintenance works


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises that part of State Highway 1 (SH1) on the south side of the Brynderwyn Hill will be closed for essential maintenance over five nights, beginning Sunday 25 July.

The work will be carried out one lane at a time between Artillery Road and SH12 intersection between 6:00pm and 6:00am finishing on Friday July 30.

Stop/go traffic management will be in place and motorists are advised that delays are possible.
