Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is advising motorists that work will get underway on a range of minor safety improvements on State Highway 29, from the intersection of SH28 (Rapurapu Road) to the top of the Kaimai Ranges, from Friday 30 April subject to weather.
This work will be carried out at night from 9pm to 5am and two lanes will be maintained at all times. During these works, a temporary speed limit of 30km/h will be in place.
Motorists are advised to take extra care, reduce your speed and follow directions of traffic management staff and signage.
In the event of bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances, work may be postponed. Visit the interactive Waka Kotahi Journey Planner website for the latest information on roadworks, traffic, road closures and detours to help plan your trip.
This work is part of a programme to make regional state highways safer through a range of low-cost, high-benefit safety improvements. For more information visit our Safety Boost Programme webpage.
