Rugby Road safety project taking shape

|

Construction on the NZ Transport Agency's SH3 Rugby Road Underpass Realignment at Tariki is making excellent progress, with a significant section of the project already open to traffic.

Construction on the NZ Transport Agency’s SH3 Rugby Road Underpass Realignment at Tariki is making excellent progress, with a significant section of the project already open to traffic.

NZTA state highways manager Errol Christiansen says once completed the 3.6km realignment will provide a safer, easier route and will help reduce crashes on this section of highway.

“Motorists using the new stretch of road will notice first hand that construction is moving along swiftly, and we’re on track for completion mid next year.”

Mr Christiansen says the new route north of the subway and a temporary section of road is now open to traffic in both directions. This will enable construction to be carried out on the new overpass and its approaches with minimal disruption to traffic.

Construction for the project has so far seen the completion of three road bridges, widening for a southbound passing lane, and substantial progress on the new rail overpass. The project is due to be completed in mid-2010.

Speed restrictions are in place at the site but delays are expected to be minimal. The NZTA thanks motorists for their patience.
