Waimakariri Gorge Bridge Update and daytime closure

Work on the Waimakariri Gorge Bridge is progressing steadily with 43 of the 47 new bridge deck panels now in place.

Due to forecast weather, sealing work on the Waimakariri Gorge Bridge is now programmed to take place on Thursday 16 May between the hours of 12noon and 2pm. The bridge will be fully closed during this time.

The nightly bridge closures between 7.30pm-4.30am will continue until sealing occurs.

Please note that this work is weather dependent and can only be undertaken in fine and dry conditions. Any changes will be further communicated.

Daytime works to install the guardrail and removal of scaffolding will now take place from Tuesday 14 May. This will involve short 10 minutes closures during the daytime until Friday 31 May.

We thank you for your continued patience while we complete this work.
