Nomo tomo – but night-time closures required


The tomo is nomo – but NZ Transport Agency Waka Kotahi advises that State Highway 29A will need to close overnight tomorrow night, Wednesday 14 February and overnight Thursday 15 February to finish repairs.

SH29A will be fully closed between Barkes Corner and Oropi Road Roundabout from 7pm- 6am both nights to complete a side drain, berm works and manhole connections to the new culvert.

The highway re-opened at 5.40am this morning following emergency repairs to replace 38 metres of stormwater pipe, which had cracked and created a 4 metre deep, 11 metre long tomo or cavity under the road.

The team will need to return for an additional night, at a date to be advised, to complete the final surfacing and address any damaged seal.  The public will be notified once this work has been scheduled.

NZTA thanks road users for their co-operation and patience while we complete these important works.
