Update on Spinnaker Dr slip

spinnaker slip

We remain focused on reopening Spinnaker Drive as soon as practical, subject to competing activities across the city.

Currently, we are working through the process to carry out a competitive public tender to engage a supplier to deliver the final geotechnical design work required for a permanent repair. We expect to have this out to market next month.

We have also carried out a speed survey on Bosun Tce, following complaints that vehicles were speeding through this detour route. It found that an average of 2 per cent of drivers, per day, were driving over the speed limit of 50km/h.

And you may have noticed that the two portable electronic variable message signs (VMS) on the SH58 approaches to Spinnaker Rd, advising of the closure ahead, have been replaced with fixed static signs. The aim of this is to minimise ongoing costs, now that it is clear the closure is likely to be in place for longer.

For updates on what is happening with this slip, and all other road closures and temporary speed restrictions, visit our dedicated webpage here.
