Partial road closure at Bayfair roundabout this weekend


The Bayfair roundabout will be partially closed for one night this weekend in preparation for the installation of ground improvements in the area, as part of the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency Bay Link project.

The partial closure is currently scheduled to take place overnight from 7pm Sunday 15 November to 5am Monday 16 November.

This partial closure is to enable the Bayfair roundabout to be made larger in order to accommodate the construction of lattice ground improvements. These ground improvements will support the State Highway 2 flyover bridge.

While the partial closure is in place, motorists from Matapihi Road will not be able to travel through or around the roundabout, and SH2 northbound traffic will not be able to turn right onto Girven Road.

The detour route (pictured below) will direct people to the Golf Road roundabout.

If you are travelling at these times, please drive with caution through the project site, reduce your speed and follow the directions provided on traffic management signage. Where possible, please use alternative routes or plan your travel around this partial road closure.

In the event of bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances, the closure may be moved to the next suitable night.

Waka Kotahi thanks motorists for their patience.
