Plan ahead - detours for State Highway 30/Te Ngae Road - Eastern Corridor, Rotorua


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises motorists that two detours will be in place from next week for SH30 Te Ngae Road between Vaughan Road and Ōwhata roundabout.

A full closure of the Basley Road/Te Ngae Road intersection will be in place from Monday 7 August to Friday 11 August 2023 between the hours of 8pm to 5am while contractors work on the new traffic signals for the Basley Road intersection.

Access for local traffic will be maintained via detours.

Residents in this area can enter and exit however they will not be able to cross the Basley Road Intersection.

The works have been deliberately timed to be carried out at night when there is less traffic on the highway and to minimise disruption for drivers.

Full closures also allow the work to be completed quicker.

A second detour will be in place for all eastbound traffic from Sunday 6 August 8pm, 24/7 for up to five weeks.

All traffic, including heavy vehicles, will be required to turn left at Vaughan Road and follow detours to Ōwhata roundabout.

Any local traffic at the Iles Road intersection will need to take the right turn at Iles Road and follow detours. The westbound lane on SH30/Te Ngae Road will remain open.

Access for all local residents and businesses will be maintained via detours.

Waka Kotahi thanks road users for their understanding and patience during this work on SH30 Eastern Corridor Stage Two - to improve safety and connectivity, while accommodating for future growth and providing better travel choices.
