Watch out for road works on your hol­i­days

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

The New Zealand Trans­port Agency ad­vises mo­torists plan­ning their sum­mer hol­i­days to be aware of road works in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty re­gions.

Road main­te­nance ac­tiv­ity in­creases dur­ing the sum­mer months to take ad­van­tage of good weather.

Key con­struc­tion works will be tak­ing place from Jan­uary 14 to Fe­bru­ary 14 on State High­way 29 from Hin­uera to Te Poi.

Main­tain­ing and re­pair­ing the re­gion’s roads is an in­te­gral part of the NZTA’s fo­cus on Safer Jour­neys for all road users. Waikato NZTA state high­ways man­ager Kaye Clark said sev­eral of the more than 2600 kilo­me­tres of state high­way in the re­gion carry some of the high­est traf­fic loads in the coun­try.

NZTA does its best to keep de­lays to a min­i­mum.

‘‘How­ever, in some lo­ca­tions traf­fic flow through or away from the works area needs to be man­aged care­fully to max­imise the safety of road users and the work crews while work is un­der­way,’’ Mrs Clark said.

NZTA has road work de­tails at nzta.govt.nz/traf­fic or on 0800 4HIGHWAYS (0800 44 44 49).
