Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency says the builder of Transmission Gully CPB HEB is continuing to make good progress fixing construction defects and pavement issues required for the Transmission Gully motorway to open.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency says recent on-site investigations by Waka Kotahi roading experts shows significant progress has been made by the builder, CPB HEB, towards fixing construction defects and pavement issues required for the Transmission Gully motorway to open.
Waka Kotahi is advising drivers to allow at least an extra 45 minutes for journeys between Featherston and Martinborough on SH53, with a detour in place around the Waihenga Bridge, which remains closed following this weekend’s flooding.
One additional safety and quality assurance test was met last week by CPB HEB, the builder of Transmission Gully. Some of the outstanding tests require remedial work before they can be met, including the road surface and pavement and construction defects.
Motorists travelling southbound on State Highway 1 between Tawa and Churton Park should expect overnight closures on Wednesday 9 February and Thursday 10 February, from 9pm to 4am for gantry installations.
