2 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineDecember 6, 2019

The section of SH 29A between the Baypark and Te Maunga roundabouts will be closed this weekend, from 7pm Friday 6 December to 6am Monday 9 December, to allow for stone column ground improvement work.

The area will also be closed the following weekend, from 7pm Friday 13 December to 6am Monday 16 December, as a result of last weekend‘s closure that was postponed. This work is weather dependent, and if delayed will be carried out on the next suitable weekend(s).

The NZTA advises the following detour suggestions: 

  • SH 29A to Mount Maunganui: detour from Baypark roundabout along Truman Lane, Mangatawa Link Road, turn left at the traffic signals before crossing the bridge onto SH 2 Tauranga Eastern Link (TEL) towards Mount Maunganui.

  • SH 29A to Papamoa/Te Puke: detour from Baypark roundabout along Truman Lane, Mangatawa Link Road, cross Mangatawa Bridge, turn right onto SH 2 TEL.

  • Mount Maunganui to SH 29A: take Sandhurst Drive exit from the TEL, turn right at the traffic signals, cross Mangatawa Bridge and follow detour along Mangatawa Link Road and Truman Lane to Baypark roundabout.

  • Papamoa/Te Puke to SH 29A: take Sandhurst Drive exit from the TEL, turn left at the traffic signals and follow detour along Mangatawa Link Road and Truman Lane to Baypark roundabout.

It is advisable to use alternative routes where possible or plan your travel for outside these hours. 

The Transport Agency thanks road users for their patience and ongoing co-operation while construction of the Baypark to Bayfair Link project continues.
