Regular closures for helicopter deliveries at Ruamahunga

The team working to stabilise the large slip on SH25 at Ruamahunga is making great progress and now need equipment and supplies delivered to the top of the slope by helicopter on a regular basis. 

From Friday 23 February these deliveries will be made every second Friday until further notice. 

This will usually be done between 12 noon and 2.00pm and means SH25 will  close at the site for short periods so the helicopter can safely operate over the road to deliver those important supplies.

The road will close in both directions for up to 20 minutes at a time, then reopen to allow traffic to clear before the next closure.

We thank you for your patience while we work to get this important work done.



SH25A - overnight closure ahead

An overnight road closure will be needed shortly on SH25A, so our team can install a new rubber seal into one of the bridge joints on our Taparahi bridge.

This is expected to happen in early March and with the road closed between 11pm and 4am for one night. Our team will take advantage of the closure to also install grates on the drainage channels.

We will provide more information as soon as the date for this work is confirmed.
