One small trick may remain as late last year the Kurow Bridge over the Waitaki River had daily closures (8pm to 7am?). Will try and confirm if the rolling closure still applies as timing your crossing will affect your choice of stay on your last night on the road.

Downhill and then flat and on to Tekapo.
Coast down the hill and back to the Church of the Good Shepherd on the shore of Lake Tekapo and give yourself a big pat on the back! (and a beer).
Hope you enjoyed the inaugural Great Southern Brevet.
