Road works on Te Matau a Pohe Thursday - Saturday

Media Release

Road works on Te Matau a Pohe Thursday - Saturday

Works to manage heat related expansion of the lifting platform on Te Matau a Pohe and to replace grout that supports the track that the opening section rolls back onto will take place tomorrow, Thursday 9 January (tomorrow). 

The road will be closed to traffic on from 10am to 4pm and will be in the open position for boats from 11am to 2pm.

From 2pm tomorrow until 6am Saturday it will be closed to boats over 6.5 metres to allow 36 hours for the track grout to set. 

The expansion work will enable the bridge to lift at higher temperatures. At the moment it is not lifted once the temperature reaches 26 degrees.  

It is planned that this work will allow the bridge to be lifted at higher temperatures, although it will be monitored in case further adjustments are needed.

We strongly recommend that skippers planning to travel through the bridge in the next 48 hours do so between 11am and 2pm tomorrow.

Skippers should check with Bridge Control for an update before starting their journey.

The contacts for Bridge Control are: VHF Channel 64, mobile +64 (0)21 401 752 or Landline +64 (0)9 438 7261.

We apologise for the short notice of this work and any inconvenience caused.
