Road closures are operating at the 25 Mile Bridge on the
Queenstown-Glenorchy Rd this week, and at Precipice Creek
Bridge on the Glenorchy-Paradise Rd during the next
fortnight, for bridge repairs and upgrades.
The Queenstown Lakes District Council announced this week
work on the 25 Mile Bridge began on Wednesday, and the bridge
is open for five minutes every hour and half-hour, from 8am
The work will be completed tomorrow.
Work on the Precipice Creek Bridge will start on Monday, and
finish on Friday, April 27.
The bridge will also be open for five minutes every hour and
half-hour from 8am to 5pm.
Council network operations engineer Michael Wardill said road
users would need to put thought into timing their journeys to
avoid delays, but the result would be safer roads.
