Tasman Nelson Road Closure: Night Closures on State Highway 6, Whakatu Drive

Residents and commuters in Nelson are advised to plan ahead as scheduled maintenance works are set to disrupt traffic on State Highway 6 (SH6), Whakatu Drive. Waka Kotahi, the New Zealand Transport Agency, has announced that the highway will be temporarily closed between McGlashen Avenue and the Quarantine Road roundabout for up to ten nights, from September 17th to September 29th. The purpose of this closure is to facilitate the resurfacing of the Link Road roundabout and the Link Road extension.

Road Closure Details:

  • Location: SH6 Nelson, between the intersections of Quarantine Road and McGlashen Avenue, Richmond, Tasman.

  • Closure Dates: September 17th to September 29th

  • Closure Times: Each night from 8:00 pm to 5:00 am

  • Detour Route: Commuters are advised to take the approved detour route, which includes Annesbrook Drive, Main Road Stoke, Salisbury Road, Talbot Street, Croucher Street, and McGlashen Avenue. Please note that this detour is temporarily approved for heavy vehicles and is expected to add approximately 8 minutes to your journey time.

Detour starts at McGlashen Ave Richmond travelling north.

Resurfacing Works and Travel Planning:

During the specified closure dates and times, SH6 will be closed in both directions to allow for resurfacing works. It's crucial for all residents and travelers to plan their journeys accordingly, making provisions for extra travel time during this period.

However, it's important to note that the success of these maintenance works is contingent on various factors, and there might be short-notice postponements or extensions. It's advisable to stay updated with the latest information regarding the closure.

Waka Kotahi said, “the road closure is a necessary step to ensure the safety and durability of this vital transportation route. While the inconvenience is regrettable, it's essential for the long-term benefit of the community. We encourage everyone affected by this closure to plan their routes in advance, take the recommended detour, and allow for extra time when traveling. The resurfaced road will ultimately provide a smoother and safer driving experience for all.”
