Te Aranui o Te Rangihaeta - Transmission Gully project works completing the extension of State Highway 59 between Paekākāriki and Mackays Crossing are about to get underway.
From this Sunday, 17 September, contractors will be working on Whareroa Road, between the Emerald Glen Road roundabout and rail crossing near Queen Elizabeth Park.
They will be preparing the road for the opening the new section of State Highway 59 – work on the highway will be underway simultaneously.
The aim is to have this work completed by mid-November.
While it is underway, drivers can expect directional lane closures and detours between Queen Elizabeth Park and Whareroa Park and a temporary stop on right-hand turns from the northbound offramp at Mackays Crossing.
Directional lane closures and detours are needed to keep contractors and drivers safe. They also allow work to be completed much more quickly and efficiently, reducing the overall disruption for drivers.
