Overnight delays on SH 58 at Paremata

Motorists are being advised to expect overnight delays on State Highway 58 near the Paremata Roundabout on Tuesday 5 and Wednesday 6 October while an inlet pipe is laid across the highway to the nearby pump station.

Although both lanes will be open during the day while the work is carried out, between 9pm and 6am traffic will be managed by a “stop/go” operation. Access to Paremata Crescent, nearby properties and businesses will be maintained.

Installation of the pipe will start at 9pm Tuesday 5 October and is expected to be completed by 6am Thursday 7 October – weather permitting.

It is due for completion in July 2005 and includes:

Constructing a new Paremata Duplicate Bridge, to provide four lanes across the entrance to Pauatahanui Inlet.

Widening a 1.3 km-long section of State Highway 1 to four lanes between the Plimmerton Weigh Station and just north of James Street, and building a new roundabout to provide safe and convenient access to the Plimmerton industrial area, the Plimmerton Domain and James Street.

Widening the road along Mana Esplanade to allow for high occupancy vehicle (HOV) clearways at peak times and along St Andrews Road to provide four lanes.
