State Highway 29 Kaimai Ranges – expect delays during emergency culvert repairs


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is urging drivers travelling over State Highway 29 Kaimai Ranges in both directions to take extra care and reduce speeds as emergency culvert repair work is carried out.

Traffic is down to one eastbound and one westbound lane and a 50 kmph speed restriction is in place near the Kaimai summit where the repair work is being carried out. Drivers are asked to reduce their speeds and plan for delays.

The restrictions are expected to be in place over a couple of days while contractors establish the extent of the culvert dislodgement and blockages. Motorists are encouraged to check the Waka Kotahi Journey Planner site for traffic updates.
