Delays expected on Matapihi Road today and tomorrow


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises road users in the Matapihi area to expect delays due to a burst sewer main.

A left lane closure is currently in place on Matapihi Road near the Bayfair roundabout. Motorists are still able to travel in all directions from Matapihi Road (along State Highway 2/Maunganui Road and towards Girven Road), however ongoing delays are anticipated today (Thursday 17 June) and tomorrow (Friday 18 June). No alternative detour is available.

Works are in progress to address the issue. Motorists are advised to allow extra time for their travel.

Please drive with caution through the project site, reduce your speed and follow directions provided.
