Routine work on State Highway 2, Aongatete starts next week


People can expect delays at peak times on State Highway 2 near Aongatete from next week.

A 300-metre section of the highway near the Morton Road intersection is to be renewed.

The NZ Transport Agency says the pavement is at the end of its lifespan and it will be reconstructed to extend its life by 7-10 years.

The agency says people should take care around the site and expect moderate delays during peak times.

Both lanes are expected to stay open while the work is carried out and a 50 kilometre per hour temporary speed limit will be put in place. The work is expected to take around three weeks.

The Transport Agency asks drivers to take extra care around heavy road machinery and workers at the site.
