State Highway 1 between Taupō and Tūrangi will be closed from 7pm to 5am starting Monday 12 October until Friday 16 October.
The closure is required to allow Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency contractors to complete a new layer of asphalt on the road, both at Te Pōporo/Bulli Point and further north at Te Toki point.
Access south of the Taupō Airport roundabout, or north of the SH1/SH41 intersection will be for residents only while the road is closed. Emergency services will have full access through the work site if required.
Outside of the closure hours the road will be open for traffic in both directions as normal.
The new reduced speed limits between Taupō and Tūrangi take effect from Monday 12 October 2020.
