Detour in place while Kohouri stream bridge is repaired

Add to favourites


The NZ Transport Agency will be putting a detour in place for most of June at the Stratford end of State Highway 43, while repairs are undertaken on Kahouri Stream Bridge. 

The road around the bridge will be closed from Tuesday 5 June until Friday 29 June while the guardrails are replaced. From Friday 29 June until Friday 20 July, the bridge will be open but the site will be under a 30km/hr speed restriction and traffic may be stopped for short periods.
While the road is closed there will be a detour in place off State Highway 3 at Midhurst on Beaconsfield Road or State Highway 3 south of Stratford on Bird Road/Skinner Road.
The completion and start dates may change because the work is weather dependant.
