The final phase at the Bayfair roundabout is underway, involving reconstructing the ground-level roads leading into and away from the Bayfair roundabout to bring them up to standards required across the project.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency contractors have been working hard to clear multiple slips and fallen trees that blocked highways in the eastern Bay of Plenty and have successfully managed to restore or improve access in most areas.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is doing a lot of work along a stretch of State Highway 1 in the Waikato to deliver benefits to both road users and the local community, while ensuring that everyone can keep moving at the same time.
As time marches on towards October, a greater number of road renewal crews are setting out on their quest to complete the significant programme to be completed across the Waikato and Bay of Plenty region this summer.
The intersection of State Highway 3 and Raynes Road has been made safer for all road users by the installation of an Intersection Speed Zone. This will be in place until longer-term safety improvements, including a roundabout, raised safety platform and improved cycling facilities are built.
