SH29A closure between Baypark and Te Maunga roundabouts


The NZ Transport Agency advises that State Highway 29A (SH29A) between the Baypark and Te Maunga roundabouts in Tauranga will be closed from 4am to 8pm on Saturday 8 September 2018 as part of the Baypark to Bayfair (Bay Link) project.

Detours will be in place along Truman Lane and Mangatawa Link Road.

Motorists are urged to use alternative routes where possible or plan travel outside of these hours to avoid the detour.

The closure is needed for a water main installation. This work is weather dependent, and if delayed, the work will be carried out on the next suitable day. The road closure is not expected to affect the AIMS Games opening ceremony at ASB Baypark Arena on Sunday.

The Transport Agency thanks motorists for their patience and ongoing co-operation while construction of the Bay Link project continues.
The Baypark to Bayfair Link is designed to reduce congestion and improve safety by separating local and state highway traffic, and improving walking and cycling connections. The key features include the construction of two flyovers and improvements to the SH29A Baypark roundabout and the SH2 Bayfair roundabout.
