Motorists are advised to take extreme care and reduce their speed when travelling on State Highway 2 between Bruce Road and the Domain Road intersection.
NZTA's Bay of Plenty State Highway Manager, Brett Gliddon, says due to the current heavy rain, surface flooding is occurring and a number of potholes have formed in areas which were resealed late last week.
"We ask motorists to reduce their speed and take extreme care when travelling in this area, especially as potholes have appeared on the road surface. Repairs will be carried out as soon as the sealing crews are able to access the site."
The NZTA thanks motorists for their continued patience and assistance while this work is being undertaken.
