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.

On The Team Behind Trump's Throne

Forget the Putin factor. Daily, the team of charlatans, bigots and stunningly ignorant crackpots that Trump is appointing to head key federal agencies is just as alarming.

Ever since the world fell prey to the mullahs of the free market in the 1980s, no amount of real world evidence has managed dispel one key tenet of their economic faith. Namely, the idea that if you cut income taxes and taxes on small business, a wave of individual enterprise and entrepreneurial energy will thus be unleashed, profits will rise and – hey bingo! – the tax cuts will soon be paying for themselves ...
