State Highway 36 Tauranga To Ngongotaha open to one lane

The NZ Transport Agency wishes to advise that State Highway 36 between Tauranga and Rotorua is now open to one lane at Awahou. There is traffic management in the area and drivers are asked to take extreme care.

The highway was closed to light traffic earlier this morning due to flooding. Contractors have been monitoring the water levels in the area and will continue to do so throughout the day, as more rain is expected.

State Highway 29 between Tauranga to Te Poi, over the Kaimai Range, is also experiencing some surface flooding although the road is open in both directions.

The Transport Agency asks that drivers take extra care when travelling today, to reduce their speed and increase their following distances.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
