About the project

Construction of the project will involve building two flyovers; one flyover will take State Highway 29A over the railway line and the Te Maunga intersection and the second flyover will take State Highway 2 traffic up and over the Maunganui-Girven intersection.  As part of the project the existing Maunganui-Girven Road intersection will also be upgraded, the Te Maunga roundabout replaced with an elevated interchange, the Truman Lane roundabout improved, and safer walking and cycling connections will be provided between Baypark and Bayfair.
