Oropi Road to be open from 5.30pm
Oropi Road is expected to be re-opened from 5.30pm this evening, between Cheyne Road and Oropi Stream Bridge, to one lane of traffic.
A Tauranga City Council spokesperson says a 24-hour stop/go system will be in place.
“The detour is no longer required. Please drive cautiously over this repaired section of the road.
“Once we have completed some testing work tomorrow, we will be able to temporarily re-open both lanes by tomorrow evening.
“There will be a partial road closure in a few weeks time to undertake the permanent repair.
“We will provide updates when available.”
