Lane closures will be in place as work is will be done on all four corners of the intersection and the central medians.

Major traffic delays are expected.

Traffic will not be able to cross Cameron Road as the centre of the intersection, between the northbound and southbound lanes of Cameron Road, will be fully closed.

  • Traffic heading from Fifteenth Avenue to SH2 will be diverted along Fraser Street and 17th Avenue, to the northbound lane of Cameron Road to SH2.
  • Traffic heading from SH2 to Fifteenth Avenue will be diverted left onto Cameron Road to Thirteenth Avenue, Devonport Road, to Fifteenth Avenue.
  • These detours will also be in place for eastbound (heading to Fifteenth Avenue) and westbound (heading to SH2) traffic.

Detours and digital travel information signs will be in place.

This work is being carried out by Tauranga City Council and the Cameron Road Joint Venture and is weather dependent.

If commissioning does not occur on this weekend, it will occur from 7pm Friday 18 August to 6am Monday 21 August.
