Aerial assessment

Our team of geologists and engineers took to the skies on Wednesday morning for a helicopter view of the four short listed options.  The aerial review is an essential component of the assessment of the short listed options for the SH3 alternative route.

The flight took our team over the approximate routes suggested for all four options to allow for a visual assessment of the topography, and to verify earlier desktop analysis.

We will confirm a preferred approach for the Manawatū Gorge alternative route by mid-December.

You can find more information about the project on our website at www.nzta.govt.nz/manawatu-gorge.

Management of alternative routes

The Saddle Road Upgrade Project is progressing well with activities focussed near the summit. Work at this location will continue under stop/go traffic management over the coming weeks. These works will at times run into the night so drivers using this route may experience some delays during the day and night.

No further major maintenance works are planned for the next couple of weeks on the Saddle Road or Pahīatua Track but we will continue to monitor the condition of both these routes and respond quickly to any issues as they arise.

Further repairs and reseals on the Saddle Road will begin on the 11th of December and this will result in partial closures of the Saddle Road. We will be providing more details of these closures and works in the coming weeks.  Please check out our Facebook page

Update on temporary bypass of Ashhurst & Woodville realignment

We appreciate that we have not been able to announce any substantive news about the options for the temporary bypass of Ashhurst for some weeks, and that this is causing frustration.  Work is continuing in this area.  We thank you for your patience - we will provide you with information as soon as there are new developments.  We also continue our investigation of the realignment options for Woodville.  Again, thanks for your patience and we will let you know as soon as we have news.
