State Highway 2 will be closed during the day at Devil’s Elbow on State Highway 2, approximately 30km north of Napier, next month, while Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency contractors undertake road repair works.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency has undertaken a review of speed limits along State Highway 30 (SH30) between Tikitere and Whakatāne in an effort to save lives and prevent serious injuries from crashes along this high-risk road.
As people continue to make the most of the fine weather, they will notice road contractors also taking advantage of the hot, dry conditions to advance the significant maintenance programmes across the Waikato and Bay of Plenty state highway network.
People travelling on State Highway 2 between Awakeri and Tāneatua from Monday 24 January to Friday 28 January 2022 are asked to plan ahead and allow extra time for their journeys, due to maintenance works on the Pekatahi Bridge.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is continuing to work with the Transmission Gully contractor Wellington Gateway Partnership (WGP) and their subcontractors, CPB HEB Joint Venture and Ventia, to support getting the new motorway open to the public as quickly as possible.
