Tauranga resurfacing works – week beginning Sun 11 October


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises resurfacing works will take place on State Highway 2 in Bethlehem, between Moffatt Road and Waihi Road, from this Sunday night.

Update 12 October 2020 4.21pm

These works, which were due to start last night (11 Oct), have been postponed due to weather. Work is now expected to begin later this week.

The work will be completed over Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights to reduce the impact on motorists. Delays are expected and motorists are advised to take care, plan ahead and allow extra time for their journeys.

Due to site width restrictions, a detour will be in place from 7pm – 6am over the three nights, with road users detoured via Moffatt Road, Cambridge Road, and back onto SH2 to continue their journey. The road will be open from 6am – 7pm under a 50km/h temporary speed limit.

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.

Works are weather dependent and will be undertaken at night to reduce the impact on motorists.

Waka Kotahi thanks motorists for their patience.

Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey. Keep up to date with:
