Traffic will be down to a single lane at times while work is done to connect a new roundabout to State highways 1 and 5 at Tirau. Work starts September 15 weather permitting, and is likely to run until early December. The final stage tie-in work will see a 30kmh speed limit, with traffic down to a single lane during working hours with stop-go signs. Traffic will revert to two lanes outside work hours.
