COVID-19 SERVICES UPDATE: Information on Waka Kotahi services

Tauherenikau Bridge closed, State Highway 53, Wairarapa

|

The NZ Transport Agency is advising motorists that the Tauherenikau Bridge on State Highway 53 between Featherston and Martinborough in the Wairarapa is closed to allow road repairs to be carried out.

Heavy rain on Friday 3 February raised water levels in the Tauherenikau River, undermining the road near the bridge. 

The Transport Agency was notified this afternoon after a washout was noticed on the road. 

After a structural assessment by engineers, contractors will start repairs. It is expected that the bridge will be closed until at least tomorrow (Thursday). A detour route is available via State Highway 2 and Number 1 Line.
