Fitzherbert Bridge maintenance this week could cause delays

Tuesday May 25 2021

Residents and visitors travelling over the Fitzherbert bridge need to allow extra travel time this week, as we carry out routine maintenance on the bridge.

One lane of traffic on the Fitzherbert Bridge, heading towards Massey University, will be closed from 9am tomorrow to around 3pm on Thursday afternoon.

The other three lanes will operate as normal, but we expect the reduced lane will have an impact on traffic around the bridge. We’d encourage everyone to allow more time for travel, especially on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning peak times.

The work is focused on one of the joints that connects the bridge to the road on either side. These joints are regularly worked on as part of our ongoing maintenance schedule to ensure the bridge remains safe.
