The NZ Transport Agency advises the overnight road resurfacing works at two sites on State Highway 2 near Mangatawhiri will now start 9 February.

Resurfacing will take place at the first site, between Pinnacle Hill Road and Dobson Road, on 9 and 10 February. It was originally scheduled for 2 to 4 February.

Works on the second site, between Kopuku Road and Coalfields Road, will take place from 11 to 13 February.

All dates are weather dependent.

Auckland system manager Andrea Williamson says work will take place between 7pm and 5am so it‘s completed quickly, safely and efficiently during light traffic.

“Stop/go traffic management and a temporary speed limit will be in place during the works.”

“Vehicles travelling at the temporary speed limit help to press the new chip into the seal and help keep themselves, other road users and our road work staff safe.

“Please adhere to the temporary speed limit and keep a safe following distance of at least two car lengths.”
