NZTA: Upcoming Remutaka Hill (SH2) road closures

State Highway 2 (SH2) over the Remutaka Hill will be closed for two blocks of five consecutive nights during March 2019 to enable essential maintenance work to be safely carried out.

The Remutaka Hill road will be closed from 9pm to 4am, for five consecutive nights on:

  • Sunday 3 March to Friday morning 8 March
  • Sunday 24 March to Friday morning 29 March.

Access will be available for emergency services throughout the closure.

The night time maintenance work will significantly reduce the number of day time disruptions on the hill road, enable better quality maintenance work, and increase the safety of maintenance crews.
