Bridge closes for repairs
The Gemmells Crossing Bridge will be closed for 48 hours from Tuesday, March 3 for repairs.
The repairs have been arranged by the Waitaki District Council and are required to fix a hole that has formed in a concrete panel on the bridge deck.
‘‘ We apologise for any inconvenience, however, we are confident there will be minimal disruption to motorists,’’ acting roading manager Mark Renalson said.
‘‘Forty-eight hours is required to make the repair and allow the deck to cure. Once re-opened, a temporary speed limit will be in place for a further seven days when crossing the bridge.’’
Alternate routes will be via Kakanui Valley Rd and Roundhill Rd.
