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.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency will begin construction of a turnaround bay at the entrance of Keeley’s Reserve on State Highway 1, east of Cambridge, next week as part of the SH1 Cambridge to Piarere Safety Improvements.
Waka Kotahi is advising drivers to watch for upcoming ramp closures and detours while scheduled road resurfacing is carried out on State Highway 1 along the 4.8km Rangiriri section of the Waikato Expressway.
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.
