Roadworks update

SH2 Remutaka Hill Road


Tuesday, 8 August 2023



Kia ora

Apologies all, the correct date for the one-night maintenance closure this weekend on State Highway 2 Remutaka Hill is 9pm Sunday 13 August to 4am Monday 14 August. 

The wrong date was put in the previous email.

Light vehicles can be escorted at intervals across the hill behind a pilot vehicle. Bookings are essential and should be made in advance.

  • Please book by 4pm Friday 11 August at
  • Provide your mobile number, car rego and make for the Bookings Register
  • Crossings timetable:
  • Hutt to Featherston 10.30pm and 12.30am (22:30 and 00:30). Featherston to Hutt 11.30pm and 1.30am (23:30 and 01:30)

Numbers are strictly limited and travellers turning up without a booking risk being turned away or having to wait at the closure point for the next opportunity. If you have a genuine emergency on the night, the hill manager will decide how best to help you. Any additions to an escorted crossing are at the discretion of the hill manager who must consider the safety of workers and travellers on the night.

Access will be available for 'flashing light' emergency services throughout the closures.

We understand the closures may inconvenience some road users and thank you for your patience and understanding as we carry out this essential maintenance work.

These regular night closures significantly reduce the number of disruptions at other times for road users. Road crews can complete a large amount of work safely during these closures because multiple crews can work across the hill simultaneously without disrupting traffic.
