Easter hours for Golden Bay


27 March 2018 | SOUTHERN REGION

Easter hours for Golden Bay

Takaka/ Golden Bay Easter open each day, 8 am to 8 pm plus new evening longer time slot

The Takaka Hill road into Golden Bay (SH60) will be open for convoys 8am – 8pm all of Easter, Good Friday to Easter Monday inclusive.

On Thursday night (29 March) the afternoon opening will be from 3 pm through to 9 pm for Easter traffic.

“If there are more small slips as occurred over the past weekend – for example – if it rains heavily, crews will work to maintain the convoys in these advertised times but people should bear in mind there may be delays and check the Transport Agency’s website or social media for updates,” says Frank Porter, NZ Transport Agency System Manager.

Longer weekday and Saturday open hours

The hours for opening the hill road into Golden Bay in the evenings were extended at the end of last week.

The new weekday and (non-Easter) Saturday open hours are 6-8 am mornings and 5-9 pm evenings.

Sundays (outside of Easter) will continue to be open all day as much as possible, 8 am to 8 pm, as crews will not be working on the rebuild of the highway that day.

Permit-only freight and other urgent journeys across the hill are fitted in at midday weekdays and Saturdays. Phone 0800 4 Takaka (0800 482 525) or email takakahill@tasmanjourneys.co.nz
