Otara Bridge Strengthening and Repairs
Works have begun on the Otara Bridge over the Rangitikei River at Ohingaiti to strengthen the bridge to carry full Class 1 traffic loads. The works are expected to be completed by Christmas 2018. Most of the work will take place under the bridge using scaffolding and therefore will not interrupt traffic. However, at times we will need to close the bridge fully for up to 5 days to carry out work on the deck and approaches. We will advise these proposed closures 4 weeks in advance. In addition to this, ordinary daily traffic may encounter occasional temporary delays (stop/go control). We will aim to keep these as short as possible. Of course, we will give immediate access to emergency services, as required. Please take care to observe the existing bridge restrictions while we are working at the site.Thank you in advance for your patience. We look forward to working with you to complete this important project for the community.
