Motorists are advised to expect delays on State Highway 29 next week, as resurfacing works are carried out on the highway.

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency says the work will take place on SH29, between Poripori Road and McLaren Falls Road.

"Work will be undertaken between 7am – 7pm from Monday, January 25, until Friday, January 29, in the southbound direction (heading towards Hamilton).

"The passing lane will be closed for the entirety of the work, including overnight. A lane will remain open in both directions at all times. A temporary speed limit of 50km/h applies.

"It’s anticipated that resurfacing work will be undertaken in the same area on the northbound side in mid-February."

These works are part of the Waka Kotahi spring/summer road maintenance programme, which will see repairs and reseals on state highways across the Bay of Plenty to ensure the safety and resilience of the state highway network.

"Please take extra care, reduce your speed and follow directions of traffic management staff and signage.

"In the event of bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances, work may be postponed."
