Bay of Plenty road closures this weekend
The NZ Transport Agency is advising that State Highway 29 will be closed at the Hinuera rail crossing from 6am on Saturday June 8 to 6am on Monday June 10.
“This is to allow the rail crossing to be upgraded and the work involves improving the crossing surface, upgrading the pedestrian crossings on either side of the road and installing new signs and road markings,” says the NZTA.
“Traffic will be detoured via Hopkins Rd/Hinuera Rd/SH27 except for High Productivity Motor Vehicles which will use SH1/SH27 if travelling east or SH28/SH5/SH1 if travelling west.
“No vehicles or pedestrians will be allowed across the railway line during the closure.”
The left lane for the SH2 off-ramp at 15th Ave is also closed today.
The lane turning into Cameron Road will be closed from 9am to 9pm on Friday June 7 due to a water main leak.
