SH29 resurfacing works next week


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises resurfacing work will take place on State Highway 29 between Soldiers Road and the Ngamuwahine Bridge, on the Tauranga side of the Kaimai Range, next week.

Works will be undertaken at night to minimise disruption to motorists. The works are scheduled to take place as follows:

Tuesday 27 April and Wednesday 28 April between 6pm and 6am.

The road is expected to be fully open to traffic on Thursday 29 April at 6am.

During these works, Stop/Go traffic management will be in place with a temporary speed limit of 30km/h. Outside work hours, the site will remain under a temporary speed limit of 50km/h.

These works are part of the Waka Kotahi road maintenance programme, which will see repairs and reseals on state highways across the Bay of Plenty to ensure the safety and resilience of the state highway network.

Please take extra care, reduce your speed and follow directions of traffic management staff and signage.

In the event of bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances, work may be postponed. Visit the interactive Waka Kotahi Journey Planner website for the latest information on roadworks, traffic, road closures and detours to help plan your trip.
