Wilsons Rd update
• From Thursday 15 May two-way traffic will be restored from the Wilsons Rd/Centaurus Rd roundabout to Ramahana Rd. There will be a temporary roundabout in place.
• From Thursday 15 May, Wilson Rd will be one way heading towards the city between the Wilsons Rd roundabout and Koromiko St. This will be for approximately one week while wastewater repairs are carried out.

Centaurus Rd/Aynsley Terrace
• Aynsley Terrace is closed between Grange St and Centaurus Rd for road reconstruction and kerb and channel repairs until approximately mid-June. Residents will still have access to their properties.
• Road repairs continue at the intersection of Centaurus Rd and Aynsley Terrace heading west for about 150 metres. Stop/Go signs are in place.

Thanks
Thank you to everyone for being patient as SCIRT crews make progress city-wide, and to everyone who continues to go the extra mile to support their local businesses.

At the Port of Tauranga, there have been 26 serious accidents since 2011, and two deaths. More>>
