Motorists travelling on State Highway 2 (SH2) south of Omokoroa and north of Te Puna next Monday are advised that a manual stop/go operation will periodically be in place from Monday for a couple of weeks to allow workers to replace a water-main on the Te Puna Stream Bridge.
The bulk of the work is being undertaken under a shoulder closure between 7.00am and 6.00pm but in order to minimise disruption to motorists, periodic stop/go operations will be taking place between 9am and 4pm. Speed restrictions will only be in place during the stop/go work, says the Transport Agency.
Motorists are advised to keep to the posted temporary speed limits.
The work is expected to be completed by Friday 28 March.
The Transport Agency would like to apologise to motorists for any inconvenience and thanks them for their patience while this important work is being undertaken.
