Motorists are contacting SunLive complaining of queues north of Katikati.
They say it is slow travelling between Waihi and Tauranga today.
According to reports, there is a long queue back into Katikati in one direction and out past Kauri Point Road in the other direction.
Waka Kotaki NZTA media manager says the delays are as a result of road rehabilitation work that was being carried out in the area of Tahawai Bridge and Willoughby Road, as part of the Waihi to Omokoroa safety improvements project.
“To date, two-way traffic flow has been maintained, unfortunately at times single lane activities are required and our contractor is working hard to minimise these events to reduce the impact on the travelling public”.
She says Waka Kotahi thanks motorists for their patience.
No timeframe was given as to when the repairs will be complete.
