As part of the Bay Link project, temporary changes are required to a number of vehicle entry and exit points at the Bayfair Shopping Centre over the coming months.
These changes are necessary to allow reconstruction of entrances and exits adjacent to the Bay Link project to ensure consistency of road surfacing.
In order to retain vehicle access, construction will be staged. The first stage is scheduled to start next week and is anticipated to take approximately three months to complete.
Preparatory works for the reconstruction of the second entrance/exit along State Highway 2/Maunganui Road (nearest the Bayfair roundabout and opposite Golf 360) are currently scheduled to take place overnight on Tuesday 9 February, between 7pm and 5am.
Effective from 5am on Wednesday 10 February, the second entrance along SH2 Maunganui Road will close temporarily and become an exit only.
Southbound motorists wishing to enter the Bayfair Shopping Centre carpark from SH2 Maunganui Road will be able to do so through current entrances:
- The first vehicle entrance off SH2/Maunganui Road closest to Countdown
- Turn left at the Bayfair roundabout and use one of the two entrances along Girven Road
Directional signage will be displayed on SH2 to assist motorists in accessing the shopping centre while this temporary change is in place.
Updated information will be provided as work progresses regarding further changes to Bayfair Shopping Centre’s entry and exit points.
The Bay Link project team would like to thank motorists and Bayfair Shopping Centre for their patience while this work is undertaken.
