Waikato and Bay of Plenty state highway works for March 2024


With most renewal activities wrapping up at the end of the month, contractors are on a final push to complete as much work as weather and time allows. 

Nighttime temperatures have started to drop, and this can affect the quality of any chipseal application, says Andu Oakley, Waikato System Manager at NZ Transport Agency Waka Kotahi (NZTA). 

“Warm temperatures are critical in ensuring the bitumen stays in a liquid state while the chip is applied over the top. This means the different materials can bind together and provide the seal over the layers underneath. 

“To minimise disruption we complete significant volumes of chipsealing at night, especially on corridors with high traffic volumes. Temperatures have started dropping below 10 degrees overnight, which is an indicator that any seal we lay down will not succeed. Sites which we’re unable to complete this week may need to be completed during the day, when ground temperatures are warmer. Other activities such as asphalt resurfacing will continue into April, including several significant sites across the region. 

“Asphalt work can still take place in slightly colder temperatures, and this allows us to keep working away through April.  

This work all helps to prepare our roads for the winter ahead. The more we can do to waterproof our roads the better they perform during periods of wet weather,” says Mr Oakley.
