SH2/29A Te Maunga interchange partial opening

The new Te Maunga interchange, at the State Highway 2 and 29A intersection at Baypark, is partially open, separating SH29 traffic from the railway line.

The partial opening of the interchange enables the next stage of construction at the Te Maunga end of the project, including the construction of the Truman Lane walkway, walking and cycling connections, the ramp approaching the interchange from Papamoa, and SH2 road under the interchange. 

Changes for road users

  • Temporary traffic management with a 50km/h speed limit is in place.
  • Motorists travelling on SH2 from Mount Maunganui heading towards Tauranga Eastern Link (TEL), SH29A or Truman Lane, and from SH29A or Truman Lane heading towards Mount Maunganui or TEL use the interchange.
  • Traffic travelling from Papamoa on SH2 towards Mount Maunganui proceed straight through on the existing road (underneath the interchange).
  • There is no left turn available from SH2 onto SH29A.
  • The Truman Lane roundabout has been removed and the new roundabout on SH29A commissioned.
  • While the final ramp approaching the interchange from Papamoa is constructed, people travelling from Papamoa via SH2 and SH29A to Maungatapu/Tauriko will detour via Sandhurst Drive, Mangatawa Link Road and Truman Lane.
  • The temporary 50km/h speed limit remains in place on Truman Lane and Mangatawa Link Road. People are asked to adhere to the speed limit, share the road safely with trucks and oversized vehicles, and be aware of vehicle movements in and out of businesses along Truman Lane.

Access for people walking and cycling

Access for walking and cycling remains limited during this phase, however people can cross SH2 and access Baypark via Eversham Road, a new signalised crossing over the interchange and a temporary marked route towards Truman Lane. The final walking and cycling connection between Bayfair and Baypark won’t be available until the completion of the project.

Please take extra care when travelling through the interchange, especially during morning and evening peak times.

Waka Kotahi thanks drivers, local residents and businesses for their patience. 

Once fully operational, the interchange will carry all State Highway 29A traffic to and from SH2, removing the need for motorists to cross the railway line and allowing traffic to flow more freely onto the Tauranga Eastern Link. Upon completion, the interchange will transform the intersection of the two state highways and improve safety for all road users.
