Rockfall work under way soon at Nevis Bluff on State Highway 6

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Otago News

From next Monday, November 1, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency’s Nevis Bluff spring safety programme gets under way.

People who travel along State Highway 6 between Cromwell and Queenstown may spot activity above them on the rock faces that form the Nevis Bluff.

“People need to factor in short delays, up to 10 minutes at a time, weekdays, for around three weeks,” Waka Kotahi Central Otago maintenance contract manager Mark Stewart said.

The work would run for two weeks between 8am and 5pm from November 1 to 12.

“People stopped in their cars may be able to see abseilers inspecting and removing loose rock on the Nevis Bluff rock face,” Stewart said. “We need to ensure the road below is clear when rocks are being dropped or loosened.”

Who’ll get my record collection?

Public Trust

We all have special things we want to protect and share with the people we love when we pass away. It could be your record collection, perhaps some artwork, or even that classic car you’ve spent so long restoring. If it’s important to you, put it in your will. ​

An up-to-date will is the best way to protect your legacy – and your prized possessions. ​

If you last made a will when disco was all the rage, it’s time for an update. ​
