Project introduction

Waka Kotahi has several projects underway on State Highway 2 between Waihi and Tauranga to make this corridor safer and more efficient. Here you’ll find information about the various projects and other relevant topics.

Survey: median barrier between Tetley Road and Esdaile Road

We are seeking feedback on how we might shape a median barrier option on State Highway 2 (SH2) between Tetley Road and Esdaile Road. This is a 14.2 kilometre stretch of highway.

What is a median barrier?

A median barrier is a barrier that physically separates opposing traffic and helps to prevent vehicles travelling into opposing traffic lanes.

We appreciate you taking the time to provide your thoughts.

Katikati bypass

A Katikati bypass is not considered an investment priority for the 2018-21 National Land Transport Programme. Construction of a bypass, if required, will be after 2028. We will continue to hold the land designation which protects the route of the bypass for future use.

We are also wanting to investigate improvements within the township to address peak congestion issues and provide a better urban environment. However, for the reasons mentioned above, there is currently no funding to progress this work.

Omokoroa to Tauranga Cycleway

Waka Kotahi is working with Western Bay of Plenty District Council on the Omokoroa to Tauranga cycleway. The cycleway is open for use between Omokoroa and the SH2 Wairoa River Bridge.

The final section, from the Wairoa Bridge to Tauranga, is under investigation. We are working with Council and project partners/stakeholders on possible designs for this section.
