Broadway road works continue
Travel delays may be possible as work on the southern end of Broadway will soon begin.
Reconstruction road works along the southern end of Broadway in Matamata will be completed this summer.
The reconstruction of SH24 Broadway from Meura Street to SH27 roundabout was finished earlier this year.
The remaining section, from Meura Street to Burwood Road roundabout, will be completed this construction season.
NZ Transport Agency regional performance manager Karen Boyt says the stretch of Broadway is now programmed for full design to enable construction by the end of summer.
‘‘We were trying to get this done last summer with the rest of the Matamata works but things didn’t go to plan.
‘‘We will continue to maintain the road to a serviceable level until our contractors can get in for the full reconstruction work,’’ Ms Boyt says. ‘‘Work at this southern end of Broadway is likely to be done during daytime hours with traffic managed through the site.
‘‘We will have more later in the season.’’ details
