Five weeks of rock stabilisation work near Queenstown’s Bungy Bridge gets underway early in April, says NZ Transport Agency Waka Kotahi (NZTA).

The highway will be down to a single lane, weekdays 9am-4pm, from Tuesday, 2 April, through to Tuesday, 7 May. Delays could be up to 10 minutes at a time says Peter Standring, Maintenance Contract Manager for NZTA in Central Otago.

“We are not anticipating lengthy delays at this site, but in order to safely clear any rock off the highway after scaling, we need to have the extra time available and use Stop/Go traffic management,” he says.

Mesh will be used to secure the bluff and rock bolts. Standring says NZTA thanks all drivers for their patience while this work is completed ahead of winter. Emergency vehicles will have access at short notice.
