The New Zealand Transport Agency will be undertaking essential works in the Lyttelton Tunnel between the hours of 9 pm and 5.30 am on Thursday 22 February.

Normal traffic will be restricted to single lane operation for the hours stated, therefore some delays are expected. In addition, restrictions will also apply to the movement of dangerous goods.

Dangerous goods that necessitate tunnel closures will only be allowed to pass through the tunnel between the following periods:

  • 7.00pm – 9.00pm 
  • 5.30am – 7.00am 

At this stage the next planned works will be on 25, 26, 27 February 2018 (TBC)

Please see attached updated February programme.

NZTA apologises for the inconvenience caused to road users, however, these works are necessary and need to be undertaken in this timeframe.
