Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is inviting communities, mana whenua, businesses and landowners to share their thoughts and whakaaro on our current projects for State Highway 35.
We’re making improvements to the safety, resilience and accessibility of State Highway 35. We know locals know their roads well, so we want to know what you think.
E whakakahatia ana te haumaru, te pūioio, te māmā ki te whakamahi i te Huanui Matua 35. Te āhua nei, ko te haukāinga te hunga tino mōhio ki ōna huarahi ake, nō reira ka whakarongo ki ō koutou whakaaro.
Over fifty slow vehicle bays and resilience sites in Hawke’s Bay and the East Coast have been approved. The Business Case for the SH2 and SH35 Passing Opportunities and Resilience package has been approved by the Provincial Growth Unit. The sites range from Tangoio on SH2 to Gisborne, and through SH35 to Ōpōtiki. The contracts are currently out for tender, with construction beginning on the first sites in spring 2020. It is expected to take two years to complete.
