Road works throughout region


Major roading and structural maintenance work on the Mohaka Bridge on SH5 has been wrapped up but motorists using the highway are being advised that three other projects are still being carried out along the stretch.

Drainage repairs are being carried out between Esk Valley and Te Pohue with speed restrictions and a single lane in place. Overhead power line work is set to take place next Monday in the Te Pohue region and restrictions will also be in place, while rural broadband is being installed between Shaw Rd and the Esk weighbridge.

On SH2 between Napier and Gisborne, dropout repairs continue to be carried out just south of Kotemaori and the north side of Mohaka Hill, while surface repairs are under way in the Raupunga area. Speed restrictions and single lane reductions are in place, and minor delays can be expected.

Five highway projects are under way between Napier and Dannevirke.

Safety improvements are taking place at Te Hauke, Pukehou and Otane, while cable and guardrail work is being carried out just north of Te Hauke and at Pakipaki. Slight delays can be expected.

Meanwhile, closer to central Napier, roundabout construction at the intersection of West Quay, Humber St and SH2-Pandora Rd continues. Surface work and cabling is being carried out and work is expected to be completed around the end of August. Motorists are advised there could be delays and bypassing the site, when possible, by using Prebensen Drive and the Expressway SH2B, is recommended.
