Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises multiple worksites are active on State Highway 30/Te Ngae Road, between Sala Street and Iles Road, in Rotorua this week, as part of the Eastern Corridor Stage One project.
Following extensive investigations of the feature discovered below State Highway 45 at Omata (near the Tapuwae Stream), Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency has concluded it presents no danger to the integrity of the highway and is not likely to have been the cause of the recent surface failure.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises road resurfacing work will get underway on State Highway 44 St Aubyn Street between Egmont Street and Liardet Street in New Plymouth from Wednesday 24 March to Monday 29 March.
UPDATE: Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency engineers completed further investigations underneath the New Plymouth-bound lane of State Highway 45 between Omata and Oakura (near the Tapuwae Stream) on Tuesday. These detailed investigations have confirmed there is no risk to the highway. Further testing in the Oakura-bound lane will continue today as a precautionary measure, to complete testing at the site.
