SH2 Pekatahi Bridge closure next week

|

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises State Highway 2 will be closed at the Pekatahi Bridge north of Taneatua between 8.30am and 4.30pm on Monday 19 and Tuesday 20 April for bridge maintenance.

Due to the narrow width of the bridge, it needs to be closed to ensure there is enough room for our contractors to carry out maintenance safely. The closure has been scheduled during the school holidays to minimise disruption to motorists.

There will be a detour in place for northbound traffic, using Taneatua Road, Arawa Road, Hinemoa Street and on to State Highway 30 towards Awakeri. Southbound traffic should use the same route, in reverse.

Outside work hours the road will operate as normal.

In the event of bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances, work will be postponed. Visit the interactive Waka Kotahi Journey Planner website for the latest information on roadworks, traffic, road closures and detours to help plan your trip.
