Breakwater Road Closure – Rock Face Stabilisation
Please be aware that Napier City Council (NCC) is closing a section of Breakwater Road this weekend from Saturday 5 June 2021 6:00am – Monday 7 June 2021 10:00pm to carry out rock face stabilisation works.
The road closure will be in place on Breakwater Road (SH50) between the Marine Parade/Coote Road intersection and the Hornsey Road/Breakwater Road intersection, with a Traffic Management Plan in action (as shown in the map below).
The rock works are taking place on the northern face of Bluff Hill, so heavy vehicles will have controlled access to the Napier Port Eastern Gate and the log trailer loading area.
Traffic Management Plan
Please note that local detours will be in place for Heavy and Light Vehicles, with VMS boards installed as necessary (as shown below).
Heavy Vehicles requiring access to the Napier Port Eastern Gate and log trailer loading area will have controlled access via the Marine Parade/Coote Road closure point.
These vehicles will need to access this point via the following NZTA-designated alternative routes:
- State Highway 2 Expressway to State Highway 50 (Prebensen Drive) to State Highway 51 (Hyderabad Rd-Georges Drive-Ellison St) to Marine Parade to Port Eastern Gate.
- State Highway 2 Expressway at Meeanee Rd Overbridge Off Ramp to Meeanee Road to Awatoto Road to Marine Parade to Port Eastern Gate.
Important Note: Any detour routes over Bluff Hill are suitable for Light Vehicles Only.

Sustainability aligned with global goals:
At the United Nations summit meeting in September 2015, world leaders adopted 17 global goals (and 169 targets) as a set of universal goals that aim to address the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world. These are known as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
