Traffic management will be in place during the day along a short section of State Highway 1 at Tamahere on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 5 & 6.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is looking to make the section of SH1 from just south of the Tamahere Interchange (at Airport Rd) and the start of the 110km/h section safer by installing roadside barriers to prevent people from running off the road.
Several roadside lights will also be repositioned to provide room for the new barriers to be installed. Before the barriers can be installed, the NZTA contractors need to locate underground services.
For two days, site investigations will get underway and semi-static traffic management will be in place. This means the work will be done in short sections, using a number of vehicles to manage traffic and protect the workers on the ground. Once one section is complete, the team will move on to the next relatively quickly.
This work will be done during daytime working hours. Traffic management will only be in place when work is being undertaken.
NZTA asks motorists to take extra care when travelling through the site by following the 70km/h temporary speed limit, as well as the directions of traffic management staff and signs.
