Overnight works on Bay Link project this week
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency will start preparatory works to divert a stormwater pipe in the middle of the Bayfair roundabout.
NZTA says work will take place between 8pm and 5am tomorrow and Wednesday, to minimise disruption to motorists.
There will be lane closures on State Highway 2/Maunganui Road on the approaches to, and around the Bayfair roundabout, while this work is underway.
A 30km/h temporary speed limit will be in place.
“The stormwater pipe diversion requires a manhole to be excavated and installed close to live traffic lanes.
“While Waka Kotahi endeavours to minimise any disturbance for local residents, this work may generate some noise and vibration.”
They remind motorists that work at level 3 does not look like pre-pandemic work.
A range of new measures are in place to ensure this work can be done safely, to protect road workers, the people in their bubbles, and road users.
“Road users are advised to travel with caution through the project site, reduce speed and follow the directions of road workers and signage.
