28 Mar 2020
The Milford Road Alliance team continues its regular maintenance work on SH94, flood damage reconstruction commences over the coming 2 weeks as Downer staff and resources ramp up from Tuesday 28 April. Plans are in place to achieve the government requirements of the new COVID-19 level 3 safety standards for all staff working on the road.
In early February, a torrential rain storm badly damaged parts of SH94 between the Hollyford turn-off and Milford Sound causing considerable disruptions for road users. A number of factors since then have enabled Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency to remove flood related vehicle restrictions and end convoys on SH94 into Milford Sound Piopiotahi from Thursday, 19 March 2020.
While the road is now open 24/7, it’s still subject to weather and other closures or restrictions that may be necessary from time-to-time to ensure the safety of all road users.
