Mt Messenger Tour – Tuesday 30th May

If you would like to join the bus tour as follows on Tuesday between 3pm and 6pm please register your interest with jill@nziht.co.nz as soon as possible as numbers are limited:

Project Overview

Te Ara o Te Ata: Mt Messenger Bypass aims to deliver a much improved road safety, resilience and journey experience. The bypass is a new 6km route from Uruti to Ahititi that avoids the existing steep, narrow and winding route over Mt Messenger on State Highway 3.

It includes two bridges of approximately 125m and 30m length, and a 235m tunnel. The route will be lower and less steep than the existing road. A substantial environmental restoration programme is also a key feature of the project. Construction is underway and is expected to take approximately four years.

The technical tour will visit the site, including the cableway,  followed by a project briefing and Q&A session with the project team. Please join us for the exciting opportunity to visit this unique and challenging site and find out more about the innovations and solutions being adopted.
