Remutaka Hill Road to close overnight for two weeks
The Remutaka Hill Road connecting Wellington and Wairarapa is to be closed at night for two weeks in March for maintenance. The Transport Agency has given notice of the closures which will be in place from 9pm to 5am in the first and last week of March. It will mean people in Featherston needing to get to Wellington will have a 270 kilometre detour through Manawatu. Mark Owen is the agency's regional transport systems manager.
