The NZ Transport Agency advises resurfacing works will be undertaken along State Highway 2 Maunganui Road this Sunday night (13 October) and Monday night.
Motorists are advised that a detour will be in place via Maunganui Road, Newton Street, Aerodrome Road and Hewletts Road.
The speed limit along the work site will be reduced from 70 km/h to 50 km/h during the night time works which will take place between 7.00pm until 6.00am on Sunday and Monday nights. This work is weather dependent and if conditions are less than favourable, the road works will move to the next fine day.
Motorists can find information about most road closures, detours and road works by calling the NZTA’s free phone on 0800 4HIGHWAYS (0800 44 44 49), which can also be used to report any significant road issues or hazards which people may come across during their travels.
The NZTA also uses other technology to provide information to enable drivers to make better informed choices about their travel. On The Move is a free service which enables people to sign up for information about crashes, road works and driving conditions on their frequently used routes - to sign up, go to www.onthemove.govt.nz(external link)
