Speed limit reductions will be in place at the locations of the resurfacing works. Drivers, are advised to avoid these two areas at the times the works are taking place/ or if this is not possible, to allow an additional 20 minutes to their journey time as a result of possible delays.

NZTA’s Bay of Plenty State Highway Manager, Brett Gliddon says the NZTA and their contractors are progressing well with their annual resurfacing works around the Bay of Plenty, thanks to the continued good weather.

He says, so far, there have been very few complaints and would like to thanks motorists for their cooperation and patience while the resurfacing works continue at various locations around the Bay of Plenty.
