Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises contractors will be undertaking road maintenance on State Highway 2 on the western side of Te Puna overnight on Sunday (7 November).
Work will take place between 7pm and 5am (Monday morning).
There will be Stop/Go with a 30km/h temporary speed limit in place during the works. The road should be operating as normal on Monday morning for commuter traffic.
Motorists travelling through the area on Sunday night are asked to plan ahead and allow extra time for their journeys, slow down, take care, and follow the directions of traffic management staff and signs.

These works are part of the Waka Kotahi spring/summer road maintenance programme, which will see repairs and resurfacing carried out on state highways across the Bay of Plenty.
