The closures are necessary so safety improvement work can carried out be on the entrances to the bridge, including the installation of rubber mats on the bridge approaches to improve safety for both motorcyclists and cyclists.

The closures are necessary so safety improvement work can carried out be on the entrances to the bridge, including the installation of rubber mats on the bridge approaches to improve safety for both motorcyclists and cyclists.

Transport Agency Network Performance Manager Pete Connors says the work requires the removal of a 50 metre section of track at each end of the bridge and installing new track and concrete sleepers. To do this a large amount of material has to be removed at the ends of the bridge and the track foundations reinstated.

The installation will be carried out by a team of Kiwirail staff who have experience with this safety system, and overseen by a representative of the European manufacturer of the matting.

Mr Connors says the closures have been scheduled to minimise disruptions for road users and clashes with any major events in the region. A detour via local roads will be available through Jacksons, Stillwater and Moana and adds about 90 minutes to travel times.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience these closures will cause motorists, however this safety work is critical and a couple of 12-hour windows plus some good weather, is needed to successfully complete this work he said.
