Queen Charlotte Drive Road Closures
Update 27 February 2024
Queen Charlotte Drive Closures Extended
The closures on Queen Charlotte Drive on Mahakipawa Hill, approximately 1.7km from the SH6/Havelock turnoff for 300m, are needed to be extended by one week.
This is due to delays caused by the ground conditions when boring the 8 metre deep holes for the site.
The closures are now planned to continue until Wednesday 6 March, excluding Sunday 3 March, between 9.00 am to 3.00 pm with openings on the hour every hour.
The crew are doing their best to complete the works requiring the closure by early next week.
An update will be sent by Antenno on Friday.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
