Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises work to repair a section of State Highway 2 in Otara, approximately 8km south of Opotiki, commenced yesterday (Monday 15 February).
These works are required to strengthen and rebuild this section of road, to ensure safety and resilience, and are best completed during the warm spring and summer months.
The road will operate under Stop/Go traffic management with a 30km/h temporary speed limit in place during the day. Motorists are advised to expect minor delays and allow additional time for their journeys or consider an alternate route.
The works are expected to be completed by the end of March, weather permitting.
Bay of Plenty Transport System Manager Rob Campbell encourages motorists to drive with care through the site and obey temporary speed limits to ensure the safety of road workers and other motorists.
“We want to see everyone get home safely.”
Waka Kotahi thanks motorists for their patience.
Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey this summer. Keep up to date with:
