The section of State HIghway 29A between the Harini and Poike roundabouts will be closed overnight, due to the placement of a 46 metre over bridge.

The road would be closed from 7pm Saturday to 7am Sunday, due to the new pedestrian bridge being put in place.

There would be a detour for light vehicles through Ohauiti Rd and Poike Rd, and trucks can detour through Turret Rd, 15th Ave and Cameron Rd.

It would also be closed from 7pm October 1 to Sunday October 2.


The over bridge would connect Ohauiti with the Waiariki Bay of Plenty campus.
