Published: Wed 29 Sep 2021 01:05 PM
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency work is likely to affect drivers in Ashburton from this Sunday night (3 October).
Ground testing will also be underway on SH1 in nearby Tinwald Monday and possibly Tuesday night overnight, with a detour for north-bound traffic.
“The work in Ashburton will run for five nights to the following Thursday night,” says Tresca Forrester, Journey Manager for Waka Kotahi.
Two sites – at the bridge and at Walnut Ave - will have night crews working with Stop/Go traffic management which may cause short delays for road users. The bridge work starts at 9pm, Walnut Ave work at 7 pm.
Ms Forrester thanked all evening and overnight drivers for their patience while the project teams complete their next stages.Ashburton River/ Hakatere Bridge (SH1) – repair to deck after storm damage
