Temporary closures on SH1 at Plimmerton

Wellington Regional Office Media Release

9 November 2004

Temporary closures on SH1 at Plimmerton on Friday night

Transit New Zealand advises road users that State Highway 1 between Grays Road and James Street, Plimmerton will have a stop/go operation in place between 9pm Friday 12 November and 6am Saturday 13 November 2004. In addition, the road will be closed for at least two periods of up to 30 minutes at a time between 12 midnight and 5am on Saturday morning (13 November). These restrictions are required to facilitate installation of a new footbridge at Plimmerton.

Transit project manager Catherine Worsley said the timing of the 30-minute closures in the early hours of Saturday morning shouldn’t cause any major delays, but people using the road at that time should allow extra time for their journey.

“As the road closures will be brief and intermittent we won’t be putting a detour in place and are asking road users to allow extra time when planning their journey,” said Ms Worsley. “However, emergency services are aware of the planned closures and will have alternative routes in place if necessary.

“The old wooden bridge will be dismantled and the steel one new one lifted into place. It is a complex operation and we deliberately timed it for the early hours of the morning to avoid major traffic and pedestrian disruption and to allow us to work as quickly and efficiently as possible,” said Ms Worsley.

The installation of the new footbridge is subject to favourable weather conditions on Friday night. If the weather is unfavourable the work will be rescheduled to Saturday night/Sunday morning.

Ms Worsley said the old footbridge was originally scheduled to be replaced in late October but the installation had to be postponed due to high winds making it unsafe to carry out the work.
