Information about roadworks in the Wairarapa region

Major roadworks on the region's state highways for the week of Sunday 9 December to Saturday 15 December 2018 are listed below to help you plan your journey.

Well-maintained state highways are an important part of keeping people safe. While we aim to do this work with as little disruption as possible, we know that roadworks can be inconvenient. Thank you for your patience while we do this important work.

Please drive carefully through work sites and stick to the temporary speed limits. Plan ahead as road works on the state highway network may affect your journey times.

NOTE: Wet weather has caused postponements in the chipsealing schedule. New dates will be advertised as soon as possible. Please note that chipsealing is usually done during the first half of the week, leaving two or more days for the chip to settle at a 30km/h temporary speed limit before the road returns to normal for the weekend.
