The NZ Transport Agency advises people who normally use State Highway 6 across the Pelorus Bridge in Marlborough that next Thursday night, 14 December, the bridge will be closed. The approaches to the bridge require maintenance repairs so the highway will be closed from 9 pm through to 5 am at the bridge.
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, 15 December 2017. Please note this Traffic Bulletin is updated every Friday.
With temperatures across the country much warmer than usual for this time of year, road surface temperatures are likely to be higher than 50°C today through Monday, 11 December, next week, says the NZ Transport Agency.
The NZ Transport Agency is encouraging drivers to avoid State Highway 29A at the Maungatapu roundabout this weekend as delays of up to 12 minutes are possible due to the relocation of the high voltage power lines.
