The NZ Transport Agency advises motorists to expect delays when travelling on state highways in the Bay of Plenty over the next week, as contractors carry out ‘mill and fill’ works as part of an asphalt repair programme.
The NZ Transport Agency says its contractors have been hard at work re-instating flood-affected roads, and with State Highway 54 expected to re-open today (Friday 3 July), only one section of the state highway network remains closed following the effects of last month's major flood event in and around Whanganui.
The NZ Transport Agency advises of the following closures for motorway improvements. Closures start at 9pm and finish at 5am, unless otherwise stated. Work delayed by bad weather will be completed at the next available date, prior to Friday, 10 July. Please note this Traffic Bulletin is updated every Friday.
The project to build New Zealand’s first ever smart motorway in Wellington is about to reach a significant milestone with the second and final push of an old off-ramp at Kaiwharawhara due next week, says the NZ Transport Agency.
