The works are weather dependent so timing may alter based on this.  There is usually a temporary speed limit of 30 km/h at each site, please slow down (including when the sites are unattended) so all our crews can get home safe to their families each night, and so that repairs on the highways take hold.  Thanks, we appreciate your patience at these sites!

 

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

  • March 14th, Gore to Invercargill cycle race, 2.30pm – 7.30pm (SH1)
  • March 21st, Road cycling race , Riverton - Tuatapere (SH99)
  • March 22nd, 2020 Try Whanau event in Bluff (SH1)

 

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.
