SH36 opened to traffic again this evening.

The road was closed to all vehicles from 10am Thursday for emergency works at Mangapouri bridge.

The abutment of the single-lane Mangapouri bridge had scoured resulting in a hole beneath the road and uneven surface on the bridge deck.  

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency contractors made swift progress on repairs and the road has reopened ahead of schedule.

Waka Kotahi thanks you for your patience while we completed this essential work to make our state highway safer and more resilient.
