The NZ Transport Agency says road users can expect delays on State Highway 2 between Clarke Road and Te Puna Road this Saturday between 6am and 6pm.
Traffic will be stopped from both directions for around five minutes at a time for vegetation control. During this time a 30km/hr limit will be in place.
There will be an optional detour for Tauranga bound cars via Te Puna Road and Te Puna Station Road.
The work has been scheduled for Saturday because traffic volumes are lower due to school holidays and less commuters using the road. The work may extend into Sunday if needed.
