Lindale Bridge nearly finished

Wellington Regional Office Media Release

14 October 2004

Lindale Bridge nearly finished

The new overbridge at Lindale intersection on State Highway 1 just north of Paraparaumu is expected to be completed and open to traffic before Labour Weekend.

“We are planning to have the bridge fully operational within the next ten days – all that needs to be done is the final sealing work,” said Transit’s project manager, Jonnette Adams.

Ms Adams said that the contractors would temporarily run traffic over the bridge tomorrow (15 October) to compact the base course in preparation for sealing.

“When the base course is sufficiently compacted they will close the bridge again to carry out the sealing work. We aim to have the sealing work completed and the bridge open to traffic on 21 October but this is dependant on getting enough dry weather to carry out the sealing work.”

Motorists are reminded to take extra care while this work is in progress.
