Tauranga resurfacing works – week beginning Sunday 1 November


Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises resurfacing works will take place on State Highway 2 Takitimu Drive, south of the Eleventh Ave overpass, from this Sunday night.

The work will be completed over Sunday and Monday nights to reduce the impact on motorists. Minor delays are expected and motorists are advised to take care, plan ahead and allow extra time for their journeys.

A lane closure and 50km/h temporary speed limit will be in place from 7pm – 5am over the two nights. The road will be open from 5am – 7pm under normal operating conditions.

These works are part of the Waka Kotahi spring/summer road maintenance programme, which will see repairs and reseals on state highways across the Bay of Plenty to ensure the safety and resilience of the state highway network.

If you are travelling at these times please take extra care, reduce your speed and follow directions of traffic management staff and signage.

In the event of bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances, work will be postponed. Visit the interactive Waka Kotahi Journey Planner website(external link) for the latest information on roadworks, traffic, road closures and detours to help plan your trip.

Waka Kotahi thanks motorists for their patience.


Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey. Keep up to date with:
