SH2 and SH25 safety works to be completed this month

|

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises minor safety improvement works will be completed on State Highway 2 and State Highway 25 before the end of the month.

These works will be to complete general finishing works following installation of rumble strips, better roadside signs and long-life line markings on a number of East Waikato state highways. Over the last couple of months our contractors completed close to 140km of road marking, 50km of rumble strips, and around 220 new or replacement signs.

This work is part of a programme to make regional state highways safer through a range of low-cost, high-benefit safety improvements.

State Highway 2

Works will be carried out between Mackaytown and Waikino in the Karangahake Gorge between 9pm and 5am from Monday 28 and Wednesday 30 June, subject to weather.

During work hours the road will be closed for 45-minute periods and will reopen for 15 minutes to allow traffic through. The first road closure will be at 9pm each evening.

State Highway 25

Work will be carried out between Pipiroa and Orongo between 9pm and 5am from Wednesday 23 to Wednesday 30 June.

During work hours the road will be closed for 45-minute periods and will reopen for 15 minutes to allow traffic through. The first road closure will be at 9pm each evening. There is the option of detouring through Ngatea on State Highway 2.

Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and allow additional time for their journeys during works on both sites.

In the event of bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances, work may be postponed. For the latest information on the works each night, visit our interactive Waka Kotahi Journey Planner website.
