Roadworks across the South - NZTA advisories

Highways South also gives a big thanks to all the volunteers and workers who have spent countless hours keeping traffic safe and moving where possible. This Civil Defense Emergency has interrupted their usual program of works. There is much cleanup to be done. They will have a program update to you early next week.

Events coming up in the region which may have an impact on traffic volumes:

  • Feb 12th – 14th – Waimumu Field Days
  • Feb 22nd – Rotary Charity Cycle Race (SH6/94)
  • Feb 22nd – Dipton Cycle Race (SH6)
  • Feb 23rd – Cobra Rod & Custom Club Street Drags (Gore)

Other points to note:

  • Avon Street, in Gore, will be partially closed to traffic from Monday 20 January until about Tuesday 31 March to allow Gore District Council to resurface the road and upgrade underground services.  Due to this, there will be a detour for southbound traffic (including heavy traffic which would normally use this bypass) via Hokonui Drive/SH94, turning left at the roundabout at the intersection with Main Street/SH1. 
  • Demolition of the Inner City Block in Invercargill is now underway.  It is unlikely that this will have much impact on SH1 and SH6 in Invercargill, however there will be an increase in traffic accessing the site in this area


Please drive safely, be patient on the roads and arrive at your destination safely.
