26/09/2017: Expect night-time traffic delays at the Lyttelton Tunnel

If you are driving at night through the Lyttelton Tunnel, expect occasional delays from later this month through until December 2018.

For a few nights each month, just one traffic lane in the tunnel will be open and on occasions both traffic lanes will need to be closed.

These traffic lane closures are required as work begins on a $28.7 million fire protection upgrade inside the Lyttelton Tunnel, to increase the safety and resilience of this essential freight route for both Christchurch and Canterbury.
