The Transport Agency is warning motorists to use their lights in a Wellington tunnel while refurbishment work is carried out.

The Terrace tunnel on State Highway One is undergoing a $50 million upgrade.

The agency says the tunnel's existing lights will be removed from Sunday night to enable a false ceiling to be removed.

A temporary speed limit of 60km per hour is also in place.
