Motorists will need to allow extra travel time on the Crown
Range Rd, which links the Wakatipu Basin and Wanaka, from
Monday as two months of major roadworks begin.
Queenstown Lakes District Council infrastructure general
manager Erik Barnes said yesterday while every effort was
being made to keep the road open, some closures of up to 20
minutes would be needed.
It is expected no more than two closures per day will be
required from Monday to Wednesday, but times will vary. Road
take place between 9am and 5pm to avoid inconveniencing
Sealing work on the road will take place from January 31 to
February 1. Traffic will be reduced to one lane.
