The NZ Transport Agency’s highway maintenance team is milling and sealing an area of highway near the Okarahia Stream, south of Kaikōura, on the Hundalee hills from Sunday night, 17 March to Thursday night, 21 March (this is weather dependent).
Drivers will be detoured around the site onto the Inland Road (Route 70) on the Kaikōura side and onto the Leader Road, near Cheviot, on the south side. This will add to the journey distance.
The work on two different sites – one a tight bend and at the nearby stream - requires a full highway closure overnight from 9pm to 7am for five nights.
