Stretch of SH2 north of Napier closing overnight for recovery works

road closure

A stretch of State Highway 2 between Whirinaki and Tutira will be closed for two nights next month for recovery work at 3 different sites.

The road, between Pan Pac Whirinaki and Tutira Store, will be closed overnight on Monday 8 April and Tuesday 9 April. The road will close each night at 9pm and reopen at 5am the following day.

The overnight work is weather dependant. If weather delays the work, contingency dates are scheduled for Wednesday 10 April and Thursday 11 April.

Over the two nights, crews will focus on rock removal at Devil’s Elbow; installing a new culvert at Tongoio Falls and asphalting at Te Ngarue Stream Bridge.

The worksites are too narrow for one lane closure and there is no viable detour. A full road closure will be in place at the times above so crews can complete the work as quickly, safely and efficiently as possible.

Transport Rebuild East Coast System Manager Martin Colditz says because there’s no viable detour during the two nights of closures, it’s essential for all road users to plan their journeys.

“Thank you to all community members and road users for planning ahead and for their support.”

Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey. Keep up to date with:
