NZTA advising drivers of detours for SH1, West Street, in Ashburton


The NZ Transport Agency is advising drivers that detours will be in place overnight on Wednesday and Thursday (February 7 and 8) to allow for night-time surfacing work on SH1 (West Street) in Ashburton, between Havelock Street and Moore Street.

Northbound traffic will be directed past the worksite on SH1, and southbound state highway traffic will be detoured down Walnut Ave, Chalmers Ave and South St, to re-join SH1 at Hinds Highway.

Local southbound traffic approaching the worksite will be directed down Havelock Street and east Street, re-joining SH1 at the Moore Street lights.

The Transport Agency thanks drivers for their patience while this work is completed.
