Night works to remove concrete barriers from State Highway 29A (SH29A), near Baypark, will take place over the next two weeks.
Work is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, June 2, to Thursday, June 4, and again on Sunday, June 7 to Thursday, June 11.
To minimise disruption to motorists, work will take place between 8pm and 5am, says Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.
"Around 100 metres of concrete barriers will be removed from the middle of SH29A near Baypark," says a spokesperson for the roading agency.
"This work requires the existing concrete barriers to be cut and removed offsite, before reinstating a crash cushion further along SH29A.
"There will be lane closures Westbound and Eastbound on SH29A for the duration of the night works. A temporary 50km/h speed limit applies."
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.
"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 journeys.nzta.govt.nz for up to date information on road works, traffic, detours and delays.
"At Alert Level 2, significantly more people are using their cars and public transport. It’s important to plan ahead and allow more time for your journeys. Remember to be kind to others, as we all get used to travelling at Alert Level 2."
Waka Kotahi thanks road users and local residents for their patience.
