Ma­jor road works start next week on State High­way 1 at the north­ern end of Pu­taruru. The NZ Trans­port Agency said its con­trac­tor, Downer, will be re­build­ing a stretch of SH1 from Cen­tral St to the bridge, 1km north of town. The work is ex­pected to give mo­torists a smoother ride and will re­duce the need for fu­ture main­te­nance. It will in­volve dig­ging out the ex­ist­ing un­even sur­face and re­plac­ing it. The trans­port agency said crews will be on-site, Mon­day to Fri­day dur­ing day­light hours, un­til the end of March. A speed re­stric­tion of 30km/h will be in place dur­ing the works. be­tween 11am and 2pm. It will be a cel­e­bra­tion of the sign­ing and cul­tures com­ing to­gether.
