SH29A weekend roundabout closures planned
State Highway 29A, between the Baypark and Te Maunga roundabouts, will be closed for two weekends to allow for stone column ground improvement work as part of the Bay Link project.
SH29A between the roundabouts will be closed from 8pm Friday, January 31, until 5am Monday, February 3, and 8pm Friday, February 14, until 5am Monday, February 17, the NZ Transport Agency advises.
Detours will be in place along Truman Lane, Mangatawa Link Road and the Mangatawa Interchange/Sandhurst Drive.
“Please use alternative routes where possible or plan your travel for outside these hours.
“This work is weather dependent, and if delayed will be carried out on the next suitable weekend.”
Further works will see the northbound lanes of SH2 between Sandhurst Drive off ramp and Te Maunga roundabout closed overnight only, from 8pm until 5am Monday 17 February, Tuesday 18 February and Wednesday 19 February 2020 (finishing Thursday morning).
“The Transport Agency thanks road users for their patience and ongoing co-operation while construction of the Baypark to Bayfair Link project continues.”
