Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency advises that work will start next week on a retaining wall to protect State Highway 41 near Hohotaka Road, east of Taumarunui.
Construction of the 40-metre long wall to prevent the road slipping away will be complete by about mid-August.
Traffic through the site, which is about 11 kilometres east of Manunui, will be down to one lane at 30km/h with traffic lights or Stop/Go traffic management for the duration of the project.
Waka Kotahi thanks motorists for their patience.
Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey this summer. Keep up to date with:
