Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s repair work on SH60 over Tākaka Hill will involve seven nights of traffic closure from Monday night, 5 July (the week after next).
Please note, Term Two for school pupils ends on Friday, 9 July so anyone heading to or from Tākaka that first weekend needs to factor this into their travel.
A large, replacement steel pipe or culvert has to be installed under the highway to ensure the site drains properly in future heavy rainfalls.
This is the first in a number of night closures planned in coming months on SH60, aiming to restore the road to two-way traffic before this summer holiday season.
Times closed: Monday, 5 July to Monday, 12 July, 9 pm to 5 am each night/ early morning.
Waka Kotahi thanks all users of the Tākaka Hill highway for their patience while the highway is reduced to a single lane for repairs, and planning around the night closures.
Emergency vehicles will be accommodated at all times.
Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey. Keep up to date with:
