Interruptions on the Southland State Highway network

It’s getting busier out on the network, so please take the time to read below for likely delays in the coming week.  This week we also have a few road closures for Christmas parades, so please take note of these if you are in the area.

For information on work or events on the State Highway that may have an impact on your travel in the coming week you can look here, these are listed below also.  The works are weather dependent so timing may alter based on this. 

There is usually a temporary speed limit of 30 km/h at each site, please slow down (including when the sites are unattended) so all our crews can get home safe to their families each night, and so that repairs on the highways take hold.  Thanks, we appreciate your patience at these sites!
