Drivers are being asked to pay particular attention to new speed limits on the Omanawa River Bridge on State Highway 29 for the next few weeks.
The speed limit on the bridge is reduced to 30km/h, while maintenance work is carried out under the bridge.
“The public will not be able to see the workers but the lower speed limit will help minimise vibrations on the bridge and ensure the effectiveness of the maintenance work,” says a statement from the NZ Transport Agency.
“The NZ Transport Agency would like to thank motorists for their patience and apologises in advance for any inconvenience the work may cause.”
