A section of Maunganui Road will be one-way traffic only during work hours for the next few works.

Tauranga City Council contractors are working on safety upgrades on the road, next to Blake Park.

“The detour for northbound traffic is via Hull Road, Totara Street and Matai Street,” says a statement from Tauranga City Council.

“The detour will be in place during work hours until Christmas while safety improvements are made between Hull Road and Hinau Street.

“The safety upgrade includes a solid grassed median island with trees and improved streetlighting, new roundabouts at Clyde Street and Tay Street and upgraded pedestrian crossing facilities.”

Works are scheduled to be finished by Christmas.

Roundabout might be ok, but the other safety improvements are hazardous and locals do not want them. Another project where council ignores the local community.
