Tauranga Direct Road - SH36 to reopen to a single lane


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

Tauranga Direct Road - SH36 to reopen to a single lane at midday today

The NZ Transport Agency says State Highway 36 (SH36) between Rotorua and Tauranga will reopen at midday today to a single lane with manual traffic control. The Transport Agency is advising heavy vehicles to continue to avoid using this road to ensure expected delays are kept to a minimum.

The Transport Agency says the road is likely to remain open to a single lane only for at least a week to allow the remainder of the slip clean up and slip stabilisation work to continue. Delays of 10 minutes or more can be expected due to the road being only open to a single lane in the Mangorewa Gorge between Te Matai Road and Dudley Road.

Alternate routes for heavy vehicles are SH2 and SH33 or SH29, SH28 and SH5.

The NZ Transport Agency thanks motorists for their patience and on-going co-operation while clean up works are completed.
