Freight de­tours re­quired dur­ing Mata­mata road­works

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

Heavy ve­hi­cles are now be­ing de­toured off Mata­mata’s main street at night dur­ing road­works on Broad­way.

The NZ Trans­port Agency is rec­om­mend­ing heavy ve­hi­cles avoid the Mata­mata area dur­ing the works, which are now un­der way un­til mid-Fe­bru­ary.

Con­trac­tor Trans­field Ser­vices, now called Broad Spec­trum, is re­pair­ing the road sur­face on Broad­way from the State High­way 27 round­about to the Bur­wood Rd round­about.

Work for the north­ern end is be­ing done at night, while the south­ern sec­tion with be mostly day works.

Light ve­hi­cles can use Broad­way dur­ing the night works but the trans­port agency en­cour­ages heavy ve­hi­cles to avoid the Mata­mata area at night (by us­ing State High­way 1 and 29 for in­stance) and those trucks ap­proach­ing the town from the north and south will be de­toured off Broad­way.

The de­tours for trucks will be ex­tended to both day and night at var­i­ous times be­tween Jan­uary 17-29 to pro­tect the new sur­face.

De­tours are well sign-posted and a traf­fic con­troller is at each end of the route to as­sist. Trucks need­ing to get in and out of the town for pick-ups and de­liv­er­ies have op­tions avail­able.

The de­tour route for trucks is Bur­wood Rd-State High­way 27. An­other op­tion is Tower Rd-Rawhiti Ave-State High­way 27.

The Trans­port Agency and Broad Spec­trum thank peo­ple in ad­vance for their pa­tience and un­der­stand­ing while they do this im­por­tant work.
