Tauranga motorists warned of major traffic delays Monday and Tuesday

Tauranga City Council is urging motorists to avoid all unnecessary travel on Monday and Tuesday (12 and 13 Feb), and work from home, ride share or use alternative transport if they can.
 
The Council is expecting major traffic delays and severe congestion on Monday and Tuesday following the unexpected closure of a section of State Highway 29A near Oropi for emergency work, combined with an unavoidable lane closure on Totara Street, as both are major routes in and out of Mount Maunganui.   
 
The Council is doing all it can to help the situation, including opening the eastbound Hewletts Road bus lane for all vehicles (going toward Maunganui Road).

The Totara Street work has progressed quicker than planned and given the delays from SH29A that we are experiencing, will reopen a day early, at 4:00am, Tuesday, 13 February.  Road users may feel some minor imperfections on the new section of road until concrete texturising is complete. This work will take place from 9:00pm, Friday 16 February, through to 6:00am, Saturday, 17 February under a stop-go traffic operation.
 
The closure of State Highway 29A between Barkes Corner and Oropi Road Roundabout follows the discovery of a large cavity under the road. Until investigations reveal the extent of the repair, the timeframe for re-opening is unknown at this stage.
 
Detours are in place for both roads, but the Council strongly urges motorists to delay unnecessary travel, use alternative transport, or work from home until Wednesday if possible. 

Thanks to the community for their patience and understanding while work is underway to repair both roads.
