Eastern Hutt Road (Partial Closure and Traffic Delays) – 13 January 2015

13 January 2015 4:04PM

Eastern Hutt Road near the Silversteam rail bridge remains partially closed after it was struck by a vehicle last Wednesday (7 January). 

A temporary repair has been undertaken and full Metro rail services are running on the Hutt Line but Eastern Hutt Road remains partially closed.

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.
