Three-week lane closure on Saddle Road from 30 April

1 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineApril 29, 2019

The NZ Transport Agency advises that the westbound lane of Saddle Road will be closed for three weekdays per week, for a period of three weeks, from Tuesday 30 April.

The lane will be closed for roadworks from 8.30am to 2.30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week, then another three days the following two weeks.

It is expected the work will be completed by 17 May. Planned closure days may change dependant on weather. There will be no closures on weekends.

The full westbound closure allows for the safe and efficient construction of the remaining pavement works on the steep, narrow Woodville side of Saddle Road.

The road will be under stop/go traffic control during the lane closure. Motorists can still travel east over the Saddle Road from Ashhurst towards Woodville, but will not be able to travel west over the Saddle Road from Woodville towards Ashhurst during the closures.

The alternative route for westbound traffic is via the Pahiatua Track.
