Motorists who drive on SH73 through Arthur’s Pass will have delays of up to 30 minutes at a time on Thursday from 10 am to 2 pm.

NZTA crews will be doing emergency repairs to the pedestrian walkway on the Rough Creek bridge at the entrance to the village.

The bridge on SH73 needs to be closed to provide safe access for the team.

The work is weather dependent so if it is very wet, it may be completed at a later date.

Journey Manager Tresca Forrester said the work will be completed ahead of the upcoming school holidays in October.
