Drivers urged to plan for delays. State Highway 1 repairs - Nelson to Picton - Blenheim to Picton

Waka Kotahi Traffic Bulletin: 

4 December 2023

Drivers travelling between Tasman/Nelson and Blenheim to Picton can expect delays tomorrow (Tuesday, 5 December) as contractors continue repair works on State Highway 1 at the Picton Elevation.

The site is about 1km or so outside of Picton.

Basically, anyone catching a ferry will have to go through the site – Nelson traffic could use Queen Charlotte Drive to avoid it – but that route would take much longer than the expected delays at the stop/go


Road workers will be on-site between 8:30 am and 4 pm carrying out preparatory work before drilling to drain groundwater begins on Wednesday, 6 December.


Stop/go traffic management will be in place to keep road workers safe and allow them to get the job done as quickly as possible. Drivers can expect delays of around 15 minutes when passing through the works area.


The work underway is to repair damage to the road caused by a change in groundwater movement under the road’s surface.


Drivers must obey stop/go traffic controls and temporary speed limits and follow all instructions from road crews.


Because the works site is enroute to and from Picton, drivers with ferry connections should allow extra travel time for their journeys.


Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey. Keep up to date with:
