Plan ahead for overnight maintenance on SH3 Cobham Bridge from Sunday


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises overnight maintenance work on the State Highway 3 Cobham Bridge in Whanganui will be undertaken over three consecutive nights from this Sunday (21 August).

Work will involve maintenance of the drainage system.

Contractors will start work at 6pm each night and finish at 6am the next morning. People are advised to plan ahead and expect delays of up to 20 minutes, to time their travel for outside the work period where possible, or consider alternate routes.

In the event of bad weather, work will be moved to the next fine day.

Contractors are also planning overnight work on the State Highway 4 Whanganui City Bridge on Monday 29 August between 6pm and 6am. During this work the left lane will be closed to trucks and trailers.  

Waka Kotahi thanks everyone for their patience and understanding while this important work is underway.
