Motorists are advised that the State Highway 2 On Ramp from the Route K Overbridge to Takitimu Drive will be closed to eastbound traffic early next week for road resurfacing. Eastbound Traffic from Route K (Toll Road) will be diverted onto 15th Avenue, Cameron Road and Elizabeth Street, says the NZ Transport Agency.
The closure is to allow for road resurfacing works to be carried out over two consecutive nights.
The works will take place between 6.00pm and 6.30am on the nights of 11 May, 12 May and 13 May.
When the detour is in place, eastbound vehicles will not be charged for use of the Route K toll road.

Motorists are advised to drive with care and to expect delays whilst this traffic management is in place. The Transport Agency wishes to thank drivers for their patience and Tauranga City Council for their cooperation, while these works are being done.
This work is very weather dependent.
