Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency contractors have been working hard to clear multiple slips and fallen trees that blocked highways in the eastern Bay of Plenty and have successfully managed to restore or improve access in most areas.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is doing a lot of work along a stretch of State Highway 1 in the Waikato to deliver benefits to both road users and the local community, while ensuring that everyone can keep moving at the same time.
Light vehicles and campervans will be able to travel through Makarora on the Otago side of the Haast Pass again today in two convoys at midday and 4.30 pm. From tomorrow 8 am convoys will be added in, says Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is aiming to re-open the Haast Pass link between the South Island’s West Coast and Otago/Queenstown to a single lane of traffic for light vehicles to be escorted through at set times from tomorrow (Tuesday 26 September).
The Haast Pass link between the South Island’s West Coast and Otago/ Queenstown is remaining closed this weekend due to the massive amount of slip material needing to be removed at Muddy Creek bridge and either side of it, says Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.
As time marches on towards October, a greater number of road renewal crews are setting out on their quest to complete the significant programme to be completed across the Waikato and Bay of Plenty region this summer.
