Work to widen the intersection of Porowini Avenue and Maunu Road continues.
Over the past week United Civil contractors have worked on fibre, water, wastewater and power systems under the intersection and taken out the traffic island.
Over the rest of the year the intersection will be widened, including strengthening the bridge over the Waiarohia Stream.
Businesses along Porowini Avenue remain open for business throughout the work.
When the job is complete, the left and right turn lanes from Porowini Avenue will be long enough for left turning traffic to flow smoothly, rather than queuing behind right turning traffic.
For traffic turning into Porowini Avenue from Maunu Road, the wider intersection will allow safer and easier access to Porowini Avenue.
