Night works lane closures on Bay Link project
Night roadworks will be carried out from Sunday at the Bay Link project site and lane closures will occur.
Work is scheduled over three nights, including barrier maintenance work and the removal of sheet piles from inside the Bayfair roundabout says Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.
This is part of the recent stormwater pipe diversion works.
To minimise disruption to motorists, work will take place between 8pm and 5am.
On Sunday, May 24 there will be a left lane closure on State Highway 29A eastbound. A 50km/h temporary speed limit is in place on State Highway 29A near Baypark.
On Monday, May 25 and Tuesday, May 26 there will be a right lane closure around the Maunganui/Girven Road roundabout and right lane closures on all four approaches to the roundabout. There will be a temporary speed limit of 30km/h in place around the Bayfair roundabout for the duration of these works.
Road users are advised to travel with caution through the project site, drive to the conditions, reduce speed and follow the directions of road workers and signage, says NZTA.
“While NZTA endeavours to minimise any disturbance for local residents, this work may generate some noise and vibration.”
In the event of unsuitable weather or other unforeseen circumstances, work will be carried out on the next suitable nights.
