State Highway 29A closures 22 to 25 March

State Highway 29A closures 22 to 25 March

State Highway 29A between the Baypark and Te Maunga roundabouts will be closed this weekend from 9pm Friday, 22 March to 4am Monday 25 March.

This is to allow for stone column ground improvement works to be carried out.

Detours will be in place along Truman Lane and Mangatawa Link Road.

Motorists are urged to use alternative routes where possible or plan travel outside of these hours to avoid the detour. This work is weather dependent, and if delayed will be carried out on the next suitable weekend(s).

The NZ Transport Agency would like to thank all road users for their patience and ongoing co-operation while construction of the Baypark to Bayfair Link project continues.

Detour suggestions

SH29A to Papamoa/Te Puke: detour from Baypark roundabout along Truman Lane, Mangatawa Link Road, cross Mangatawa Bridge, turn right onto SH2 TEL.

The project

The Baypark to Bayfair Link is designed to improve safety by separating local and state highway traffic, improve access on a key route to the Port of Tauranga, and improve walking and cycling connections. The key features include the construction of two flyovers and improvements to the SH29A Baypark roundabout and the SH2 Bayfair roundabout. www.nzta.govt.nz/baylink

Ellen Rykers on The Dig: Community Conservation – The Solution To The Biodiversity Crisis?

There are backyard trapping networks doing their bit for Predator Free 2050, farmers planting native trees along their waterways, and iwi protecting whenua rāhui. There are 62 biodiversity sanctuaries across 56,000 hectares, with around two-thirds of them community-led. There are citizen scientists counting birds in their backyards and landowners conserving habitat in 3,500 Queen Elizabeth II National Trust covenants.

It’s increasingly clear that a government agency alone cannot combat the biodiversity crisis successfully. These grass-roots initiatives are a growing resource in the conservation toolbox. More>>
