Road crews will be highly visible on Northland’s roads again this month as the NZ Transport Agency resumes its work to make the regions highways safer and more resilient.
“Warmer and drier temperatures are ideal for carrying out road works which means crews can start their summer safety and maintenance programme,” says Tim Crow the Transport Agency’s Northland Safety and Network Performance Manager.
Road users are advised to plan ahead and allow extra time for their journeys because the work will mean lane closures and speed restrictions on some routes.
“We ask motorists to take extra care and slow down through road works and respect the reduced speed limits because we want to keep all road users and work crews safe.”
