Dunedin’s Southern Motorway Upgrade: Expect Detours + Delays

The NZ Transport Agency is advising people travelling on Dunedin’s Southern motorway to expect detours and some delays while work is done to make the road safer.

“There will be detours in place over the next three months while the Safe Roads team widens the road between Dunedin and Mosgiel, lays a new road surface and installs flexible side and median safety barriers. These are important changes that will prevent people from being killed and injured on this road,” says Transport Agency System Manager Graeme Hall.

Work will start on Monday, 15 January and run day and night until the end of March 2018.

“If you are driving on this road during this time make sure you follow the sign-posted detours and allow an extra 15 minutes travel time during the work. If you are travelling to and from Dunedin Airport or other destinations where time is important allow an extra 20 minutes or take an alternative route if you can.”

The Transport Agency thanks the community and people using the road for their patience and understanding while the work is underway.

These safety improvements are part of the government’s $600 million Safe Roads programme, targeting the prevention of 900 deaths and serious injuries on high-risk rural state highways over the next decade.
