Tauranga has a sprinkler and irrigation system ban in place 


New Year's Eve

Your summer holidays are one of the most exciting times of the year.

Welcome 2021 with family-friendly community events in the City Centre, Greerton, Matua, Mount Maunganui, and Papamoa and enjoy city-wide midnight fireworks from your own backyard.

Bay Dreams - Plan Ahead to Avoid Delays

Sunday, 3 January 2021 will be a busy day for the city’s roads with up to 20,000 people expected to attend Bay Dreams music festival at Trustpower Baypark Stadium.

To manage event traffic, the roads around the stadium will be closed to all vehicles except festival buses. Most ticketholders will be using the free drop and ride bus service at Blake Park, Gordon Spratt Reserve and Durham Street in the city centre.

A managed pedestrian route will be in place through Eversham Estate for people walking from Arataki to Baypark, and back when the event finishes.

Road Closures

Truman Lane will be partially closed to traffic from 7pm on Saturday 2 January and fully closed all day Sunday 3 January.

Eversham Street and side-streets will be closed to traffic from 8am Sunday 3 January to 1am Monday 4 January. Residents will still be able to access their properties. 

State Highway 2, 29 and 29A will have various closures in place starting from 7pm on Sunday 3 January to 1am Monday 4 January, including:

  • State Highway 2 - Eastbound lane only from Girven Road to Te Maunga roundabout, then both lanes closed to Mangatawa Link Road (also closed)
  • State Highway 29A - Southbound lane only from State Highway 2 towards Maungatapu

See more on the NZTA website, and for more information on traffic, detours and delays visit the Waka Kotahi journey planner.

If possible, please use an alternative route or travel at a different time - if you need to travel through these areas, drive carefully and expect delays.
