Map 2Road closedSH26 south of Paeroa closed for ten days for bridge repair

We have been advised by NZ Transport Agency that SH26 south of Paeroa will be closed for up to ten days from 18 November for repairs on the Rotokohu Canal Bridge, with a detour in place.

Undermined abutments need repair

The flow of water down the canal has undermined the abutments which need to be repaired with sheet piles and backfilled. The bridge is too narrow to do this while safely maintaining one lane of traffic, says Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Systems Manager Rob Campbell. 

NZTA thanks motorists for patience

“We’d like to thank drivers in advance for their patience while we carry out this important

repair work,” Mr Campbell says. 

Detour in place

You won't quite need a packed lunch but, do allow extra time for the detour in place. Drivers planning to head south from Paeroa will need to take SH2/Awaiti Road/Paeroa-Tahuna Rd to rejoin SH26 which adds approximately 13 kilometres or eight minutes to a journey.   

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