Brynderwyns closure for SH1 maintenance


Brynderwyns closure for SH1 maintenance

Drivers are being reminded by the NZ Transport Agency to allow more time for their travel this weekend when State Highway 1 on the Brynderwyn Hills in Northland is closed overnight for maintenance work.

Weather permitting, SH1 over the Brynderwyns will be closed in both directions from 6.45pm, and will re-open the next morning at 5am. The first stage of work will continue for five consecutive nights from this Sunday – 30 and 31 March, and 1, 2 and 3 April. The highway will be closed a second time on Sunday 6, 7, and 8 April.

Southbound traffic will be diverted through Waipu and Mangawhai, and northbound traffic will be diverted via Paparoa/Oakleigh. The Transport Agency recommends that people travelling between Auckland and Northland allow an extra 30 to 45 minutes for their journey.

The closures will allow contractors to resurface the highway on the southern side of the hill.

The overnight closures are timed when traffic is light to minimise disruption.

Ends
