State Highway 2 Te Puke – resurfacing works

State Highway 2 Te Puke – resurfacing works

The NZ Transport Agency is advising drivers to take care when travelling on State Highway 2 (SH2) north of Te Puke, where a number of potholes have appeared after this week’s severe weather.

Contractors are expected to start resurfacing works, between Atuaroa Bridge and Te Puke Quarry Road on Sunday June 15 from 6.30pm, weather permitting.

Traffic is being moved across the carriageway and will still flow in both directions while the temporary work is completed. A detour is in place near Atuaroa Bridge for local traffic access. The repair work is expected to be complete by Tuesday June 17.

The Transport Agency’s Bay of Plenty highway manager Brett Gliddon said traffic speeds in the area had been lowered to 70kph to allow contractors to complete temporary repairs.

The Transport Agency is investigating the exact cause of the deterioration which had been made worse by heavy rain, he said.

A continued temporary speed limit of 70km/hr will be placed over this section of SH2 until a permanent solution is found.

The Transport Agency thanks motorists for their patience and apologises for any inconvenience while this important work is carried out.

Half Empty: Dairy Prices Drop To Lowest Since August 2009

Dairy product prices fell to the lowest level in more than five years in the latest GlobalDairyTrade auction, led by declines in butter milk powder and whole milk powder.

”Stocks of dairy commodities are building across the globe due to Russia’s current ban on importing dairy products from many Western nations, and a lack of urgency from Chinese buyers, while at the same time global milk supplies are expanding,” AgriHQ dairy analyst Susan Kilsby said in a note.
