Getting State Highway 60, Motueka, ready for reconstruction


Waka Kotahi contractors will begin work on State Highway 60, High Street Motueka, next week, undertaking road investigations.

Road crews will inspect the road surface and take samples ahead of future road reconstruction work as part of regular state highway maintenance.

The work will be done on Wednesday, 12 July, between 8 pm and 5 am. The location will be High Street, between Tudor Street and Woodlands Avenue.

To give our contractors a safe space to do their work, the road will be reduced to one lane with 30 km/hr temporary speed restrictions and Stop/Go traffic lights in place.

The work has been deliberately timed to happen at night when traffic volumes are lower, and every effort is being made to minimise the impact on residents and road users. However, some short travel delays can be expected.

Waka Kotahi appreciates road works can be frustrating. However, this work is essential to the state highway maintenance programme. Knowing the state of the road ahead of reconstruction allows our contractors to better plan jobs and projects.
