1 MinuteBy NZ Trucking magazineSeptember 14, 2020

Due to works on the Waiau River Bridge, the NZ Transport Agency advises the bridge will be closed in both directions from 8pm Friday 18 September to 8am Saturday 19 September. These works are subject to change and are dependent on various factors. 

Traffic will need to make a detour, with southbound traffic turning right on to River Road, then right on to Leslie Hills Road. Turn left or right on SH7 depending on your destination. The reverse will happen for northbound traffic. 

Please note this detour route is not suitable for heavy vehicles and they are advised to use SH7 and SH1 as an alternative route.
