In an effort to save lives and reduce the number of serious crashes, the NZ Transport Agency is reviewing speed limits along parts of State Highway 33 and State Highway 30 in the Bay of Plenty through Paengaroa and between Ōkere Falls and Rotokawa Road.
The NZ Transport Agency advises of the following closures for motorway improvements. Work delayed by bad weather will be completed at the next available date, prior to Friday 23 August 2019. Please note this Traffic Bulletin is updated every Friday.
The NZ Transport Agency and Auckland Transport are delighted that work to widen and improve the Orakei Basin Boardwalk is now finished. The upgrade of the boardwalk forms Section 3 of the Glen Innes to Tamaki Drive Shared Path.
A landmark new pedestrian bridge will be installed over Auckland’s Southern Motorway (SH1) later this month, connecting communities on both sides of the motorway and linking to a new 4.5km walking and cycling path between Papakura and Takanini.
Ongoing rain combined with a complex rock face at South Westland’s Clarke Bluff, SH6, mean the highway closure put in place yesterday afternoon will remain in place all day today (Tuesday) and Wednesday morning.
A rockfall, triggered by heavy rain in recent days, between Haast in South Westland and the top of the Haast Pass has closed State Highway 6 just after 3 pm today. The route connects Westland to Makarora on the Otago side.
