Night works to take place on SH29A
The New Zealand Transport Agency are advising motorists there will be overnight resurfacing work starting on SH29A between Takitimu Drive and Barkes Corner this Sunday April 7.
Bay of Plenty system manager Rob Campbell says this road is due to be resurfaced as part of the Transport Agency’s normal safety and maintenance programme and should take around eight days to complete.
“While these works are relatively minor, we are mindful that there is a lot going on in this area at the moment, including the Tauranga Crossing State 2 having just opened and a stormwater upgrade along Pyes Pa Road.
“We’re doing the work at night between 6pm and 6am, to help minimise disruption as much as possible to travellers during the day, however there may still be some minor delays, particularly during the peak morning and afternoon hours.
“We ask motorists if possible to consider travelling outside of peak hours,” says Rob.
A 50kmph temporary speed limit will be in place for the duration of the work and traffic will be operating under a stop/go management.
“There will be periods of time when the metering lights at Barkes Corner roundabout will not be working. We remind drivers that during these periods they should continue to obey normal give way rules at the roundabout and drive carefully and considerately,” says Rob.
