Information about roadworks in the Wairarapa region

Major roadworks on the region's state highways for the coming week are listed below to help you plan your journey.

Well-maintained state highways are an important part of keeping people safe. While we aim to do this work with as little disruption as possible, we know that roadworks can be inconvenient. Thank you for your patience while we do this important work.

Please drive carefully through work sites and stick to the temporary speed limits. Plan ahead as road works on the state highway network may affect your journey times.

NOTE: Weather or other factors may cause roadworks to be postponed to the next suitable day or night.
