The holidays are here, but we know that many of our friends in the nation’s newsrooms will still be at work, so the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency media team will be on call to help during the 2021/22 Christmas/New Year break.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency crews will be working on SH87, the Outram to Middlemarch highway, inland from Dunedin, this January. Road users will face delays up to 40 minutes while the work is being completed ahead of the new school term.
State Highway 29 over the Kaimai Range is scheduled for up to three weeks of crucial maintenance work early in the New Year, during which time there will be a number of stages of work and associated traffic management requirements.
As part of design refinement and budget considerations, Waka Kotahi will prioritise work on the Ngakawau River Bridge abutments, to protect the bridge in the first instance. Coastal permits and consents have now been issued, which will allow the bridge abutment work to take place.
