Look out for road maintenance crews in Tauranga


The NZ Transport Agency says people can expect to see crews laying new road surfaces or carrying out maintenance in places such as Hewletts Road and Takitimu Drive over at least the next week.

The work will be done at night with lane closure or stop/go traffic management when there are fewer people on the road, however some of the Hewletts Rd work will require a short detour under the flyover.

The work will be carried out on State Highway 2 Route K toll road, State Highway 2 Hewletts Rd, State Highway 2 Takitimu Drive and State Highway 2 at Apata Station Rd.

NZTA’s Bay of Plenty Transport Systems Manager, Rob Campbell, says people should check before they travel and be prepared for delays.

“We’d like to thank you in advance for your patience and understanding while we carry out this important work.”

“Before you leave for your journey we’d advise you to check the NZTA website(external link) or call our 0800 44 44 49 number and prepare for delays,” Mr Campbell says.

The resurfacing is affected by weather so dates can change, but people can get the latest information from www.nzta.govt.nz/traffic(external link) or by phoning 0800 44 44 49
