Maungatapu Bridge reopened


State Highway 29 near the Maungatapu Bridge is now fully open with a temporary reduced speed limit of 50 kmh.

The bridge had been closed since 11am while police worked to retrieve a van which plunged off the bridge last night.

All lanes are now open but a temporary speed limit of 50kmh will remain in place until bridge repairs are complete.

Temporary fencing has been erected in the meantime.
