There will be plenty of people taking it to the limit this weekend between Christchurch and Dunedin, and on other Otago and Southland highways, to have one of those nights at the Eagles concert in Dunedin Saturday.
Flexible barriers down the middle of the road to stop head-on crashes, a new roundabout at Marlborough Airport, and rumble strips to give drivers a wakeup call are among road safety ideas proposed for a high-risk stretch of highway between Blenheim and Nelson.
The NZ Transport Agency advises of the following closures for motorway improvements. Closures start at 9pm and finish at 5am, unless otherwise stated. Work delayed by bad weather will be completed at the next available date, prior to Friday, 1 March 2019. Please note this Traffic Bulletin is updated every Friday.
