Commuters between Cromwell and Queenstown should expect delays of up to ten minutes from Monday May 1 while autumn scaling and abseil inspections are carried out at Nevis Bluff on State Highway 6.
The Nevis Bluff is about 25 minutes from Cromwell and 35 minutes from Queenstown.
NZ Transport Agency senior network manager, John Jarvis, said people will need to build in extra time for their journeys as delays will be inevitable for around two weeks.
Because road user safety is important, delays of up to ten minutes should be planned for between 8am and 5pm on weekdays from May 1 to May 12.
The work is part of on-going safety and monitoring of the Nevis Bluff, and involves abseil inspection and rock scaling to remove loose debris, following changes as a result of winter weather effects.
This work is subject to weather conditions.
