Delays expected near bridge

Temporary road closures on Arthurs Point Rd, from 6pm to 9pm this Friday and November 23, are expected to cause delays of 15-20 minutes for motorists.

Queenstown Lakes District Council project manager Lane Vermaas said the closures were required to allow foam bitumen stabilising of the road surface over a 50m stretch of road on the Arrowtown side of the Edith Cavell Bridge.

Mr Vermaas said despite the closures, there would still be access for emergency service vehicles.

The council had opted to carry out the work in the evenings to minimise the risk of traffic disruption and thanked everyone for their patience, he said.
