Ratanui Bridge (Bridge 309)

Council is aware the new guard rails mean it's harder for approaching drivers to see vehicles on the bridge. We've had to bring the guard rails up to current standards for safety reasons.

However, we are looking at what we can do to improve visibility, for example advanced warning signs that will only be activated when there is a car on the bridge. In the meantime, drivers need to slow down and take extra care when approaching this bridge from sides.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
