Resurfacing works on the way for State Highway 58, Whitby


Regular users of State Highway 58 between Porirua and Pāuatahanui need to be ready for roadworks that could affect their travel next week.

Contractors will be carrying out resurfacing work on SH58, Paremata Road between 19 and 23 March. It will see asphalt replaced at various sections on the route.

The work is part of planned maintenance to ensure the highway is kept safe for all road users. It has been timed to happen at night to minimise disruption for road users.

The detours will create minor travel delays and road users should factor this into their travel plans. Waka Kotahi wants to thank drivers for their patience and understanding while this work is completed.
