Summer roadworks programme to begin
The first project of Gisborne’s state highway summer roadworks programme will begin tomorrow.
The New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) is advising motorists that they should expect delays along State Highway 2, approximately 1km south of the Waipaoa Bridge, while work is done to refresh the road surface.
During this time, the site will be under stop/go and stop/stop traffic management, with a temporary speed restriction of 30kmh in place.
The work is expected to be completed by Friday, October 18, depending on weather.
Motorists should expect delays of up to 15 minutes and are advised to plan ahead.
The state highway summer roadworks programme will see 139km of road surface across Tairawhiti either resealed or repaired.
“NZTA thanks motorists for their patience,” a spokeswoman said.
