SH5 Rotorua resurfacing works overnight Sun 29 Nov


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises resurfacing works will take place on State Highway 5/Fairy Springs Road, at the Cochrane Street intersection, this Sunday 29 November.

The works are being completed overnight between 7pm and 5am to reduce the impact on motorists, however minor delays are expected. Motorists are advised to take extra care when travelling through the site and allow extra time for their journeys.

A lane closure and 30km/h temporary speed limit will be in place at the intersection during the night works.

These works are part of the Waka Kotahi spring/summer 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.

If you are travelling at these times please reduce your speed and follow directions of traffic management staff and signage for the safety of all road users and our road workers.

In the event of bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances, work will 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.
