Overnight works next week on stretch of SH2 north of Napier


A reminder to road users that two nights of work will take place from Monday on a stretch of State Highway 2 between Pan Pac Whirinaki and Tutira Store, north of Napier.

Stretch of SH2 north of Napier closing overnight for recovery works

The road, between Pan Pac Whirinaki and Tutira Store, will be closed overnight on Monday 8 April and Tuesday 9 April. The road will close each night at 9pm and reopen at 5am the following day.

The overnight work is weather dependant. If weather delays the work, contingency dates are scheduled for Wednesday 10 April and Thursday 11 April.

Over the two nights, crews will focus on rock removal at Devil’s Elbow; installing a new culvert at Tangoio Falls and asphalting at Te Ngarue Stream Bridge.

The worksites are too narrow for one lane closure and there is no viable detour. A full road closure will be in place at the times above so crews can complete the work as quickly, safely and efficiently as possible.

NZ Transport Agency Waka Kotahi is reminding all road users to plan their journeys to take the closure into consideration.
