SH1 SOUTH OF KAIKŌURA – ROCKFALL CANOPY UPDATE
Work to complete the 110-metre rockfall canopy between Peketā and the Parititahi Tunnels south of Kaikōura will now finish end-June (subject to weather).
The 30-minute daytime delays (Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm) will continue for another couple of weeks, with traffic cleared in both directions after each closure.
Abseilers will undertake some final tensioning and grouting work, and then the temporary rockfall mesh on the hillside can be removed by helicopter – marking the completion of this complex piece of safety work.
Thank you for your ongoing patience as we complete this complex piece of safety work – and especially to those who live in the surrounding communities and travel through every day - we're on the home stretch. To keep up to date with this work or for any other information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
State Highway 1, south of Kaikoura, between Ferniehurst and Peketa
