Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises the Te Puke Highway, near Pah Road, will be reduced to one lane at times today Thursday 21 and tomorrow Friday 22 July.
This is to allow the contractor to safely repair potholes that have formed because of the rain and put a new layer of surfacing down.
We appreciate the impact the lane closure and stop/go will have to people using the road. To minimise the delay, manual stop/go will be in place so the team can actively monitor traffic.
People are asked to take extra care when travelling through the site by following the temporary 30km/h speed limit, traffic management and directions from staff.
The alternative route is the Tauranga Eastern Link Toll Road – tolls are being collected during this time.
Waka Kotahi thanks motorists for their patience while we undertake this important repair work.
