State Highway 59 is getting a pre-Christmas spruce up

|

Regular users of State Highway 59 between Plimmerton and Pukerua Bay can expect to see some road works next week.

Contractors will be hard at work chip-sealing and line-marking the highway next week. The work has been timed to fit in with slip repairs underway at Pukerua Bay, as traffic volumes are expected to be lower.

Schedule

Chip-sealing will be carried out between 4.30 am and 5.30 pm Monday-Wednesday. Sweeping and line marking will be done between Tuesday and Friday.

Monday 12 December

  • The Northbound state highway lanes will be closed from 4.30 am from the Plimmerton weigh station to the merge south of Pukerua Bay.
  • Traffic will be directed to the southbound side of the highway, with one lane in each direction.
  • There will be stop/go traffic control at the Airlie Road intersection for access.

Tuesday 13 December

  • The Northbound state highway lanes will be closed from 4.30 am from the Plimmerton weigh station to the merge south of Pukerua Bay.
  • Traffic will be directed to the southbound side of the highway, with one lane in each direction.
  • There will be stop/go traffic control at the Airlie Road intersection for access.

Wednesday 14 December

  • The Southbound state highway lanes will be closed from 4.30 am from Airlie Road to north of Plimmerton roundabout
  • Traffic will be directed to the northbound side of the highway, with one lane in each direction.
  • There will be stop/go traffic control at the Airlie Road intersection for access.

A restricted speed limit will be in place for up to three days and nights following the works to settle the seal.

Drivers of heavy vehicles and those with wide loads should use an alternative route while these works are underway. All other road users should expect delays and plan their travel accordingly.

It is also important drivers obey all traffic management instructions and temporary speed limits. This helps protect our road crews, the road surface, and road users.
