SH29 Omanawa Bridge work to be carried out next week


The NZ Transport Agency advises motorists travelling along State Highway 29 in the vicinity of Omanawa west of Tauranga to expect delays next week starting from Monday 2 December, as guard rail repairs will be carried out on the Omanawa River Bridge.

The work will start on Monday 2 December and is expected to be completed by Friday 6 December. The road across the bridge will be reduced to a single lane for the duration of the works.

The work involves repairing the guard rail on the north side of the Omanawa river Bridge requiring at least one lane to be closed for this work to be carried out safely. Workers will be working around the clock, 24 hours to complete the work in time.

Traffic will be controlled by manual Stop/Go operation during the day, and traffic signals will be used at night. As delays will occur during this period, motorists are advised to allow extra travel time for their journey and to drive with care through this area.

The Transport Agency thanks motorists for their patience and ongoing co-operation while this important maintenance work is being carried out.
