Construction works continues at pace along State Highway 2 between Waihī and Tauranga as we edge towards summer.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency Bay of Plenty System Manager, Roger Brady, says Waka Kotahi is currently looking at multiple communications channels to ensure road users of this SH2 corridor are informed of delays in a way that best suits them.
“As well as traditional media, we will be updating the SH2 Waihī to Tauranga Corridor webpage and the SH2 Waihī to Ōmokoroa safety improvements webpage on a weekly basis with any traffic impacts and delays you may expect,” says Mr Brady.
Waka Kotahi’s monthly corridor update will be out in the first week of November and will also contain information on what to expect in the month ahead.
Waka Kotahi will continue to work closely with councils to share any unexpected traffic impacts across their various channels.
This is what you can expect to see on your journey between Waihī and Tauranga this week:
- Athenree Road to Tanners Point Road – road widening works continue throughout the week. Expect minor delays of up to five minutes.
- Tanners Point Road to Kauri Point Road – power and watermain relocations are underway, with expected completion end of November. Expect minor delays of up to five minutes. Stop/Go traffic will may operate at times.
- Rea Road / Tetley Road intersection – works alongside the highway are ongoing. Expect minor delays of up to five minutes.
