SCIRT traffic update this weekend, & week of 17 February, 2014
Coast to Coast this weekend – take care on the Southern Motorway Saturday, midday onwards with cyclists allowed access, also on road to Sumner. http://www.transportforchristchurch.govt.nz/daily-roading-updates/
Safety concern Bridge St bridge, South Brighton: Truck drivers and drivers of heavy and articulated vehicles are reminded that the bridge to South Brighton is currently jacked and on temporary piles. They should not be attempting to cross it. Drivers of heavy vehicles risk a substantial fine and they are also endangering people’s lives. There are two signs and an electronic sign reminding drivers of the weight limits, but some drivers are ignoring these.
