Eastern Hutt Road (Partial Closure and Traffic Delays)

08 January 2015 4:04PM

This to advise your listeners that Eastern Hutt Road near the Silversteam rail bridge has been partially closed as repair work is undertaken after the bridge was damaged by a vehicle strike on 7 January. 

Only one lane is open to traffic and motorists using Eastern Hutt Road can expect significant delays. We are advising motorists to take alternative routes when possible.

Lane restrictions are expected to stay in place until full repairs have been completed for the safety of motorists and KiwiRail staff and contractors working on-site. 

KiwiRail is working with Upper Hutt City Council to ensure motorists are kept informed of delays and updates will be provided as the work continues.
