Work to repair the Ruahihi bridge will get underway next week and is likely to cause delays for drivers.
The work to replace the bridge's expansion joints will see the highway reduced to one lane with traffic being managed through the site with a manual stop/go operation during the day from 7am to 6pm and traffic signal during the night.
Drivers are advised to take care when driving through this construction area. Delays are expected and drivers are encouraged to allow extra travel time for their journey.
