SH1 Brynderwyn – slip remediation works


Due to slips on State Highway 1 Brynderwyn caused by ex-Tropical Cyclone Hale, the area will be reduced to a single lane under stop/go traffic management tomorrow (Thursday 12 January).

From 9am crews will be conducting slip remediation works including tree felling. While the tree is being felled, traffic will be held at each end.

Please expect delays or consider alternative routes such as Kaiwaka-Mangawhai-Waipu or via Dargaville.

Work is expected to be complete by Thursday afternoon, weather permitting.

Heavy vehicles and freight are encouraged to use SH12 as opposed to the western local road via Mangawhai.

Electric Vehicle (EV) users should consider the extra range required for alternative routes, or increased journey time through SH1 Brynderwyn.
