Sealing on SH1 requires lane reductions and ramp closures
Sealing on SH1 continues at night with SH1 traffic near the Waimakariri Bridge reduced to one lane in each direction overnight. To enable this work, on and off-ramps in this area need to close.
Our programme has changed a little, with some additional work being added in for the week of 16 November. This will change traffic management as follows.
- Chaneys off-ramp will remain close
- Tram Road on-ramp will close overnight
- Tram Road off-ramp will close at night next week, be open from 16 November, and then fully close for two weeks from Sunday night 22 November.
To use Tram Road off-ramp (when it is open) be in the left-hand lane from before the Waimakariri Bridge.
We will also be moving some barriers around and traffic lanes will be slightly different, so take care.
A 50km/h speed limit will be in place during the work, this will reduce to a 30km/h speed limit when the chip seal surface is new and needs to bed in. Motorcycle riders please be aware of loose gravel.
Please expect delays around the ramp areas during peak hours. Diversions will be in place. This work should not create any significant delay overnight when the work is underway. This work is weather dependent so may take longer than planned.
