Travel update – Takaka Hill Road, SH 60.  Tuesday, 20 March 2018 – Increased convoy times

Golden Bay is open for business and welcoming visitors – and some great news is that the road will be open all day during Easter from 8am to 8pm.
Though it will take some flexibility to time your trip over the Hill, it’s business as usual once you arrive. The stunning Golden Bay is offering the same extraordinary hospitality and natural attractions that make the region a must-do on any traveller’s itinerary.
Update on road travel:
As of 6am on Thursday, March 22nd, the road (SH 60) is open Monday to Saturday, between 6-8 am and 5-9 pm.
On Sundays, open all day 8 am to 8 pm as the crews have a day off for repairs.
Takaka Hill Easter opening hours – open each day, all day
The Takaka Hill road will be open 8am – 8pm all of Easter, Good Friday to Easter Monday inclusive. The Thursday night (29 March) opening is from 3 pm – 9 pm.

The plan is for the convoys to end  on or about 6th of April, with the road open 24/7 with single lane access through the damaged section, controlled by traffic lights.
