Night works will be taking place on the Bay Link site between the Bayfair and Te Maunga roundabouts over the next week.

From Sunday, June 28, to Thursday, July 2, a new stormwater drainage line will be installed underneath State Highway 2, between Exeter Street and Te Maunga roundabout.

Lane closures will be in place while work is underway.

“This work will take place between 8pm and 5am to minimise disruption to motorists,” says a Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency spokesperson.

“A temporary 30km/h speed limit applies around the Bayfair roundabout and a 50km/h temporary speed limit applies on SH2 between Te Maunga roundabout and Concord Ave.

“Road users are advised to travel with caution through the project site, reduce speed and follow the directions provided on traffic management signage.

“While Waka Kotahi 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 night/s.

Motorists are encouraged to visit for up to date information on road works, traffic, detours and delays.

“Waka Kotahi thanks road users and local residents for their patience.”
