Large beams on the move between Te Puke and Omokoroa this Sunday


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises five large bridge beams will be moved by road between Te Puke and Omokoroa this Sunday.

The beams are for a railway overbridge and will be moved from 33 Station Rd, Te Puke to 129 Omokoroa Rd, Omokoroa. They will travel down the Te Puke Highway before continuing onto State Highway 2 at the Domain Road interchange, through to Omokoroa.

Each beam is approximately 35m long, 4.2m high and 3m wide. They will be moved approximately 30 mins – 1 hour apart, with the first of the beams expected to arrive in Omokoroa around 10am and the last before 4pm.

There will be pilot vehicles travelling in front of and behind the trucks transporting the beams to ensure drivers are aware of the large size.

Motorists are asked to be patient if they encounter one of the trucks on their journeys.

Waka Kotahi thanks motorists for their patience.

Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey this summer. Keep up to date with:
