“The Transport Agency apologises for the short notice for this work, due to a combination of resourcing, rail coordination, and weather. The work has been necessary and programmed for some time. Until the bridge is replaced, this maintenance will need to happen every few months,” said Pete Connors, Regional Performance Manager NZ Transport Agency.
