Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises multiple worksites will be in place along State Highway 30/Te Ngae Road, between Sala Street and Iles Road, in Rotorua next week, as part of the Eastern Corridor Stage One project.
Delays are expected as a result of these works and may be significant at times. Where possible, the most disruptive work will be done at night to reduce the impact on motorists, while other work will require traffic management during the day.
Waka Kotahi reminds motorists to plan for delays, allow additional time for their journeys and take extra care when travelling through work sites to ensure the safety of themselves, other road users and road workers.
Contractors will be completing a stormwater crossing across Allen Mills Road, which requires it to be closed while work is undertaken.
A temporary speed limit of 30km/h will be in place at the above work sites while contractors are on site – excluding the shoulder closures at Neil Hunt Park and the Redwoods. Outside of work hours the roads will operate as normal.
Pedestrians and cyclists will be able to walk or cycle around all worksites. Where required, staff can assist pedestrians past the site safely.
In the event of bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances, work may be postponed.
Waka Kotahi thanks motorists for their patience.
Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey. Keep up to date with:
