Overnight lane closure on SH29 Takitimu Drive Toll Road this Wednesday 19 January


Motorists are advised to plan for an overnight lane closure as Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency contractors undertake work at Takitimu Drive Toll Road.

One lane of SH29/Takitimu Drive Toll Road will be closed from 8pm to 6am, Wednesday 19 and Thursday 20 January 2022 with a detour in place via Cambridge/Moffat Road between SH29 and SH2, for people heading towards the Tauranga CBD and Port. We plan to complete the works in one night, although will use Thursday 20 January 2022 as contingency.

The work to install site accesses and barriers is part of enabling works underway for the Takitimu North Link project. There is a large volume of work underway close by, including at the Tauranga end of SH2 north, where a 500m section of Takitimu Drive under the Waihī Road overbridge is undergoing repairs and a drainage upgrade.

Road rehabilitation works have also re-commenced on SH29 and SH24 on the Waikato-side of the Kaimai Range this week. There will be alternating one-way closures on Tuesday 18, Wednesday 19 and Thursday 20 January 2022. During the alternating closures, westbound (Waikato bound) traffic may travel across the Kaimai Range between 9pm and 12.30am, and eastbound (Bay of Plenty bound) traffic between 1am and 4.30am. Full road closures will be in place on Sunday 23 and Monday 24 January 2022.
