State Highway 29A closure later this week

The NZ Transport Agency advises that State Highway 29A (SH29A) between the Baypark and Te Maunga roundabouts in Tauranga will be closed from 8pm Friday, 14 December to 4am Monday, 17 December.

This is part of the Baypark to Bayfair (Bay Link) project and 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.

The closure is needed to allow for stone column ground improvement works to be carried out in the area. This work is weather dependent, and if delayed, the work will be carried out on the next suitable day.

The Transport Agency thanks motorists for their patience and ongoing co-operation while construction of the Bay Link project continues.

Detour suggestions
SH29A to Mount Maunganui: detour from Baypark roundabout along Truman Lane, Mangatawa Link Road, turn left at the traffic signals before crossing the bridge onto SH2 Tauranga Eastern Link (TEL) towards Mount.

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

Mount Maunganui to SH29A: take Sandhurst Drive exit from the TEL, turn right at the traffic signals, cross Mangatawa Bridge and follow detour along Mangatawa Link Road and Truman Lane to Baypark roundabout.

Papamoa/Te Puke to SH29A: take Sandhurst Drive exit from the TEL, turn left at the traffic signals and follow detour along Mangatawa Link Road and Truman Lane to Baypark roundabout.

The Baypark to Bayfair Link is designed to improve safety and access by separating local and state highway traffic, and improving 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.

Gordon Campbell: On How America’s Middle East Allies Are Poisoning The Ground Joe Biden Will Inherit

As even the US mainstream media has been reporting, the prime motive for the murder of Iran’s top nuclear scientist Dr. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh (by Israeli or Saudi operatives, or both) has been to poison the situation that the next US president will inherit. At best, there was only an outside chance that the incoming Biden administration and the outgoing liberal regime of Iranian PM Hassan Rouhani could have revived the Iran anti-nuclear deal that Rouhani had negotiated in 2015 with Barack Obama. Deliberately though, America’s allies have now made it impossible for Biden to pursue that option... More>>
