Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises nightworks to renew the asphalt on State Highway 45 Leach Street, between Eliot Street and Liardet Street, in New Plymouth will take place from Thursday 20 to Thursday 27 May, excluding Saturday 22 May.

Crews will be on site each night from 5.30pm – 6.30am, with traffic management in place, restricted speed limits and signposted detours. Work will alternate between lanes, with one lane operational while work is carried out.

During the day both lanes on Leach Street will be open. Some traffic management will remain in place with a 30km/h temporary speed limit and drivers may experience an uneven surface. Please drive to the conditions.

In the event of bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances, work may be postponed. Visit the interactive Waka Kotahi Journey Planner website ( link)) for the latest information on roadworks, traffic, road closures and detours to help plan your trip.
