Delays at Nevis Bluff on SH6

11:31 pm on 28 March 2013

The Transport Agency is warning motorists to expect delays between Cromwell and Queenstown until the end of May but not over Easter.

Its Central Otago area manager John Jarvis says a large amount of fractured rock is being removed from Nevis Bluff, on State Highway 6, after being assessed as a hazard to road users.

Mr Jarvis says there will usually be delays of 20 minutes but there will be a one-hour closure at midday on Tuesday and Wednesday next week.

He says there will be no delays this weekend as the work on the area will stop.
