Information sessions for Maungatapu underpass

People wanting to know more about the recent changes on the Maungatapu Underpass are being invited to an information session later this month.

Tauranga City Council will be holding an information session on May 18.

The council says the session will be held at the Maungatapu School from 11am to 2pm, to address and improve safety and traffic flow in this area.

“We would like to update you on recent changes we have made and the projects we are working on. Everyone is welcome to join staff and engineers to talk about transport related issues that are particular to their own circumstances.

“Some topic’s that will be discussed are, Tauranga’s rapid growth and its impact on the transport network, the complexity of the Maungatapu underpass and its road network, Hairini Street vehicle access and bus lane, the Welcome Bay Road intersections and the challenges with Turret Road and Hairini Bridge.”

The underpass was opened on June 22 2018 and was built by the NZTA to help improve traffic flow through the Maungatapu and Hairini roundabouts.

Who cares about talk. Why don’t they put this effort into actually doing something. Start with opening the slip road
