Section of SH29 to close for one hour today while truck is removed


The NZ Transport Agency advises that a section of State Highway 29 close to the intersection with State Highway 1, is to be closed today between 12.30 pm and 2.30 pm to allow the removal of a truck from a drain on the side of the highway.

The truck left the road in the early hours of this morning and was well off the road in the drain, with no impact on traffic flow through this area as a result.

During today's closure, detours will be in place which will add about 20 minutes to motorists’ travel times through this area.
Following the truck’s removal, the road is expected to reopen shortly after 2.30 pm today.
