Remutaka Road closed,, but you can be escorted across

News from NZTA / Waka Kotahi
State Highway 2 on the Remutaka Hill will be closed overnight on Monday for essential repairs following the recent severe weather.

The road will be fully closed to traffic from 9pm on Monday until 4am on Tuesday, to allow contractors to safely complete repairs.

The work will include removing slips, clearing culverts, replacing barriers and repairing the road.

Closing the road to all traffic will create a safer environment for contractors to carry out this work and will minimise disruption to busier daytime traffic.

Contractors will escort vehicles that need to get across the hill at approximately the following times:

· 10.30pm – Hutt to Featherston

· 11.30pm – Featherston to Hutt

· 12.30am – Hutt to Featherston

· 1.30am – Featherston to Hutt.

Waka Kotahi thanks motorists for their patience and understanding while contractors undertake these repairs.
