Murchison residents and regular users of State Highway 6 need to be ready for night-time travel delays with more rock clearing work planned for Dellows Bluff at the end of this month.
The intention is to reduce, as much as possible, the risk of more boulders falling onto the highway.
As this involves blasting to remove unstable rocks and material from the cliff face, brief road closures are needed for safety reasons.
Waka Kotahi wants to thank residents and road users for their cooperation and patience while this vital maintenance work is done. The work has been timed to minimise disruption as much as possible.
Drivers are also asked to respect road work signs and temporary speed limits. This is for your safety and that of our work crews.
