The NZ Transport Agency says road resurfacing maintenance work will start this Friday (28 February) for a week south of Katikati towards Aongetete on State Highway 2 (SH2).
There are minimal delays expected, but traffic will be managed through a manual stop/go operation during the day. Speed restrictions will be in place both day and night says the Transport Agency.
Motorists are advised to keep to the posted temporary speed limits.
The works will commence from 9.00am and go through to 4.00pm daily. Provided weather conditions are favourable the road resurface work is expected to be completed by Friday 7 March.
The work, part of the Transport Agency annual maintenance activity is being done to ensure the road surface is safe for driving on all year long.
The Transport Agency would like to apologise to motorists for any inconvenience and thanks them for their patience while this important work is being undertaken.
