Work is set to get back underway on state highway projects around the country after New Zealand moved to COVID-19 Alert Level 3 on Tuesday 28 April.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency General Manager Transport Services Brett Gliddon says Waka Kotahi has been working closely with its contractors and with Construction Health and Safety NZ (CHASNZ) to plan for a safe return to work following the end of the Level 4 lockdown period.
While some essential state highway maintenance work has continued during the lockdown in order to keep the network safe for the movement of essential goods and to support lifeline functions, all non-essential maintenance work and capital project work was stopped with the move to Alert Level 4 on March 26.
Mr Gliddon says work on Waka Kotahi projects and non-essential state highway maintenance work will be able to resume under Level 3, but with strict health and safety protocols.
