Easter/Anzac break traffic management on SH29


16 April 2014 | NZ Transport Agency - Waikato & Bay of Plenty

Traffic management in place this Easter/Anzac break on SH29 approach to Kaimai Range

Motorists travelling along State Highway 29 via the Kaimai Range towards Tauranga are advised that the road is reduced to two lanes at the base on the Hamilton side of the Kaimai Range and a speed restriction of 50 km/h is also in place this Easter/Anzac holiday.

NZ Transport Agency’s Regional Performance Manager Karen Boyt says, this temporary traffic management will be in place as workers are still in the process of completing road resurfacing works which have been delayed due to the heavy rain recently.

“We ask drivers to take care and to drive to the posted temporary speed limit of 50km/h. Also as there are only two lanes open from the base of the Kaimai Range to just before the summit, drivers travelling in both directions need to be aware that passing along this section is not possible. We ask that drivers please be patient during this part of their journeys" says Ms Boyt.

“We apologise for the inconvenience, and thank drivers for their patience until we are able to complete this work which is likely to be after the Easter/Anzac break.

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
