The Wynyard Crossing Bridge is undergoing unplanned maintenance.

To keep everyone safe, the bridge will be in the upright position and closed to pedestrians until further notice.

The Wynyard Crossing Bridge is undergoing unplanned maintenance due to a technical fault with one of its core parts. To keep everyone safe, it will be in the upright position and closed to pedestrians until further notice.

The bridge has to remain upright when not operational to allow access for boats, as legally required under the bridge's resource consent conditions.

Our teams are working hard to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.

Until normal operations resume, take the detour route around the Viaduct Harbour (see map below), or you could jump on a bike or e-scooter.

For more information, please see the project page here.
