Roadworks impacting Stokes Valley traffic

Roadworks impacting Stokes Valley traffic

On Monday 31 July, an additional lane closure will be installed on Eastern Hutt Rd.  The lane closure will be installed for the duration of the roadworks, meaning one lane southbound and one lane northbound (South of Stokes Valley roundabout) will be available for road users.  

This will impact all traffic leaving Stokes Valley.

Metlink are going to monitor this closely for the first few days to see what the impact is, especially on school buses.  The situation is not ideal but beyond Metlink's control.

Metlink are looking at the time buses are arriving at school every day and will work with that data to see what they can do going forward, as they are aware that the roadworks will be going on for several months. 

Metlink have suggested that all students who may be impacted by this disruption have a plan B to get to school on time, for example catching an earlier public route.
