Repairs to SH2 Pongakawa from Sunday


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises road repairs on State Highway 2 in Pongakawa, between Pongakawa Station Road and Benner Road, will get underway from Sunday night (30 May).

To minimise disruption for motorists, work will take place between 6pm and 6am on the nights of Sunday 30 May, Monday 31 May and Tuesday 1 June. The work will be finished by 6am Wednesday 2 June.

While work is underway, the road will operate under Stop/Go traffic management, with a 30km/h temporary speed limit in place. During the day a 50km/h temporary speed will be in place.

Motorists are asked to take extra care when travelling through the site by following the temporary speed limit and following directions from traffic management staff and signs.

Traffic control staff will assist vehicles accessing the BP petrol station.

People can expect minor delays and should allow extra time for their journeys or consider an alternate route.

In the event of bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances, work may be postponed.

This work is part of the Waka Kotahi road maintenance programme to repair and resurface state highways across the Bay of Plenty to ensure the safety and resilience of the transport network.

Waka Kotahi thanks motorists for their patience.

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