Motorists travelling along State Highway 29 (SH29) at Matapihi between Te Maunga (Bay Park) and the Maungatapu Bridge and also adjacent to State Highway 2 (SH2) on the the Waihi Road On Ramp are advised to expect delays as annual resurfacing works are being undertaken at these sites from Sunday 10 February through to Tuesday 12 February.

A lane reduction from double to single lane will be in place at the SH29 Matapihi site. Delays of up to 5 minutes can be expected for motorists travelling on this section of the road from 9am to 4pm.

The resurfacing work on the Waihi Road On Ramp will take place on Sunday morning (10 February), this section of road will be closed to traffic for approximately 4 hours, a short detour will be in place for north bound traffic (heading towards Katikati and Auckland) who will be diverted via Beaumaris Boulevard and Moffat Road.

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.

This work is weather dependant so if it is wet on the programmed days then this resurfacing work will be moved to the following weekend (Sunday 17 February).
