Road closures

All roads and state highways in Porirua City open except:

Due to a serious health and safety risk we have closed the SH1 entrance into Takutai Road, Pukerua Bay to all vehicles while we manage and repair a slip.

We are seeking funding to repair this slip in the second half of 2021.

In the meantime, the slip area is cordoned off and drivers are being directed to use the Teihana Road access instead. (See map below)

The road remains open for pedestrians and cyclists to use.

This Takutai Road entrance is one-way in only – and all traffic already exit out onto SH1 via Teihana Road.

Temporary speed restrictions

A temporary 60km/h speed restriction has been put in place for Flighty's Road in Judgeford. This is to ensure the safety of all commuters who share the road while heavy machinery frequently access the construction of Transmission Gully. Thank you for reducing your speed.

  • If you’re driving around the Wellington region, roadworks on the state highway network may affect your travel plans.
