Full closure of Wairoa River Bridge
The first full closure is planned for overnight on Monday 24 February from 10.30pm to 5.30am.
During the full closure the following local road detour will be in place:
Northbound motorists from Tauranga will need to take the signposted detour from SH2 in Bethlehem via Moffat Road and Cambridge Road, onto SH29 before connecting with Poripori Road, onto Crawford Road through to Wairoa Road and then back onto SH2.
Southbound motorists will need to take Wairoa Road before connecting with Crawford Road, through to Poripori Road and then onto SH29.
The detour route is not suitable for High Productivity Motor Vehicles (HPMV’s greater than 50Max), over-dimension and overweight vehicles.
The Transport Agency says completing the closures at night helps ensure the least amount of traffic is impacted.
The 24 February closure is one of seven planned closures required to allow Council to install sections of the cycleway extension on the Wairoa River Bridge.
The remaining closure dates will be released as they are confirmed with Council’s contractor.
The Transport Agency and Council thank motorists for their patience.
Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey this summer. Keep up to date with:
