SH2 Pekatahi Bridge works


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises urgent works will take place on the Pekatahi Bridge on State Highway 2 north of Taneatua.

These works will be undertaken on Thursday 22 July between 9am and 3pm and follows a non-structural safety issue identified during a three-day closure last week.

The bridge will remain open with Stop/Go traffic management in place. There will be a number of occasions where traffic may experience a maximum of 15 minutes’ wait to allow our staff to carry out their work safely.

The closure has been scheduled during the school holidays to minimise disruption to motorists.

In the event of bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances, work may be postponed. Visit the interactive Waka Kotahi Journey Planner website for the latest information on roadworks, traffic, road closures and detours to help plan your trip.
