Motorists are advised that there will be a significant road layout change taking place at the Tara Road and Domain Road intersection, Papamoa this weekend, as part of on-going construction of the NZ Transport Agency’s Tauranga Eastern Link (TEL) project.
The existing Domain Road / Tara Road intersection will be removed and all traffic will be switched onto the new roundabout. At the same time, Domain Road traffic will be moved across onto the new southbound lanes to allow the existing Domain Road to be removed and the new northbound lanes (heading to Papamoa) and water retention ponds to be constructed.
From 6.00pm on Sunday evening 16 March through until early Monday morning 17 March, temporary traffic management will be in place in this area in preparation to move traffic onto the new road layout.
Motorists are advised to drive with care and to expect delays as traffic adjusts to the new road layout. This work is weather dependent, and if wet, the work will be undertaken on the next suitable day.
The Transport Agency thanks motorists for their patience and on-going co-operation while construction on the TEL project continues.
