Lyttelton Tunnel restrictions - Thursday evening, April 27 to Friday morning, April 28

Night Works:

The New Zealand Transport Agency will be undertaking essential maintenance works in the Lyttelton Tunnel between the hours of 9 pm and 5.30 am on Thursday evening, April 27 to Friday morning, April 28.

The night-time works will place restrictions on traffic flows through the tunnel, and the movement of dangerous goods will not be permitted during this period.

Normal traffic will be restricted to single-lane operation for the hours stated, therefore some delays are expected.

Dangerous goods that necessitate tunnel closures will only be allowed to pass through the tunnel between the following periods:

•            7.00 pm – 9.00 pm Thursday night

•            5.30 am – 7.00 am Friday morning

NZ Transport Agency apologises for the inconvenience caused to road users, however, these works are for essential maintenance and need to be undertaken in this timeframe.
