SH2 Bethlehem maintenance works to start Sunday
Planned resealing work on State Highway 2, between Moffat Road and Parau Drive in Bethlehem, will start this weekend.
The work will be completed overnight from Sunday, May 2, to Thursday, May 7, between 6pm and 6am.
During the works one northbound lane will be closed to traffic, the other northbound lane will remain open and a 30km/h temporary speed limit will be in place.
During the day all lanes will be open as usual. No work is planned for the southbound lanes.
Nearby surface treatment works on SH2 between the Wairoa River Bridge and Taniwha Place that had been due to take place overnight tonight have been postponed. Those works are now likely to take place early next week and may coincide with these resealing works.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency Bay of Plenty System Manager Rob Campbell reminds motorists that work at Alert Level 3 does not look like pre-pandemic work.
“A range of new measures are in place to ensure this work can be done safety, to protect our people, the people in their bubbles, and road users.”
He asks people to be patient and respectful to roadworkers and look out for their safety and wellbeing.
“These people are stepping out of their bubbles to do work that keeps us all safe.”
Waka Kotahi thanks motorists for their patience as it completes one of the final sections of scheduled maintenance in the Bay of Plenty for the season.
