SH29A closures in November – detours will be in place

|

State Highway 29A between the Baypark and Te Maunga roundabouts will be closed next weekend from 9pm Friday, 9 November to 4am Monday, 12 November 2018 to allow for stone column ground improvement works to be carried out.

It is also planned to close from 9pm Friday, 23 November to 4am Monday, 26 November 2018.

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. This work is weather dependent, and if delayed will be carried out on the next suitable weekend(s).

The NZ Transport Agency would like to thank all road users for their patience and ongoing co-operation while construction of the Baypark to Bayfair Link project continues.

Fo more on the stone columns, read the media release.

Detour suggestions

SH29A to Mount Maunganui: detour from Baypark roundabout along Truman Lane, Mangatawa Link Road, turn left at the traffic signals before crossing the bridge onto SH2 Tauranga Eastern Link (TEL) towards Mount.

SH29A to Papamoa/Te Puke: detour from Baypark roundabout along Truman Lane, Mangatawa Link Road, cross Mangatawa Bridge, turn right onto SH2 TEL.

Mount Maunganui to SH29A: take Sandhurst Drive exit from the TEL, turn right at the traffic signals, cross Mangatawa Bridge and follow detour along Mangatawa Link Road and Truman Lane to Baypark roundabout.

Papamoa/Te Puke to SH29A: take Sandhurst Drive exit from the TEL, turn left at the traffic signals and follow detour along Mangatawa Link Road and Truman Lane to Baypark roundabout.

Slip lane closure at Te Maunga roundabout

As part of the project works in this area, the left-hand slip lane for SH2 Tauranga Eastern Link traffic travelling to SH29A through Te Maunga roundabout will be closed permanently from 12 November. Traffic will instead turn left at Te Maunga roundabout. People should allow additional time for their journeys as delays are likely.

The NZ Transport Agency would like to thank all road users for their patience and ongoing co-operation while construction of the Baypark to Bayfair Link project continues.

The project

The Baypark to Bayfair Link is designed to improve safety by separating local and state highway traffic, improve access on a key route to the Port of Tauranga, and improve 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.
